A man has died after a trawler sank off the south-east coast.
At around 10:30pm on Saturday, the Coast Guard and lifeboat was alerted after the boat got into difficulty and sank south of Hook Head.
One man aged in 60s was recovered by the Rescue 117 helicopter, which was dispatched to help the operation.
He was flown to Waterford Airport and then transferred by ambulance to University Hospital Waterford for treatment.
However he has since passed away.
Gardaí say searches are continuing for a second man.
The search is being coordinated by the Marine Rescue Coordination Centre in Dublin - with the Dublin and Waterford-based Coast Guard helicopters working in rotation.
RNLI units from Dunmore East and Kilmore Quay are also assisting in the operation.
They are being assisted with an inshore search by the Fethard-based RNLI inshore lifeboat.
The naval vessel, the LE Ciara, is coordinating the search - while a number of local fishing vessels are also involved in the operation.
