A search has resumed this morning for a Roscommon based fisherman who was washed off the rocks into the sea in county Clare yesterday.
The incident happened yesterday at an area known as the Fisherman's Climb, at Ailladee, in Co Clare
The same area, on the Atlantic coast between Doolin and Fanore, has been the scene of several previous tragedies.
The alarm was raised at about 5.30pm, but the recovery effort was abandoned as darkness fell.It is always sad to read news like this, a fisherman washed off the rocks into the sea and lost. But it is by no means unusual. It had happened before somewhere else, it probably will happen again in some other places of the world at some other time somehow. Independent.Ie has further details about the case:
The 42-year-old man, believed to be a Latvian national living in Co Roscommon, was washed off the rocks by a rogue wave at an area known locally as the Fisherman's Climb at Ailladee in Co Clare.and
It's understood that man was not wearing a lifejacket and may have been dragged beneath the waves by his heavy clothing.So it was a freaque wave that caused it! And not wearing a lifejacket certainly also played a major role in this tragic case. May this fisherman be rest in peace and could help future cases not to make the same mistake of not wearing lifejacket like he did again.
