Two dead in Donegal drowning tragedy

TWO people have died in a drowning tragedy near Glencolmcille.

The fishermen, understood to have been a father and son, were using an inflatable boat to angle off Teelin Pier on Saturday.

When they failed to return, locals in the area raised the alarm.


A search operation involving the Coastguard was mounted and two bodies were recovered earlier today.
