The search for the missing person at the Cliffs of Moher has been stood down. Unfortunately,  after a 14 day search effort , there was no recovery. Our thoughts are with the family.

    As a friend of the family whose daughter’s body you have been searching for since 6th April, I send you all my heartfelt thanks for your dedication and concern for my friends – I know the great help you have been to them at their time of great sadness and loss. Knowing the extreme circumstances you face in the work you do, you are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. Go raibh mile maith agaibh a cairde mo chroi, Ian
