A man in his 40s has drowned after he got into difficulty while swimming in the River Lee in Co Cork.
Gardaí were called to reports of a missing person in the water at Ballincollig Regional Park at around 8.30pm last night.
Members of the Coast Guard and Cork City Search and Rescue assisted officers in the search operation.
The man was later recovered from the water and pronounced dead at the scene.
The local coroner was notified and the body has since been removed to Cork University Hospital.
Gardaí say that their enquiries are ongoing.
The news comes as two men died after the car they were travelling in entered the water in West Cork this morning.
A man in his early 40s and a man in his late teens were pronounced dead at the scene on the Kenmare Road near Glengarriff.
