Cork City search may have been result of hoax call

Irish Coast GuardA search and rescue effort in Cork City this morning – which Valentia Coast Guard helped co-ordinate – may have been a hoax. A person reportedly went into the water off Anderson’s Quay earlier today. Valentia Coast Guard assisted in co-ordinating the effort. The search has since been wound down – rescue operatives are examining the possibility that the call may have been a hoax. Valentia Coast Guard is currently assisting in two ongoing searches in Galway and Bunratty.
