Man drowns off the Kerry coast

A man has drowned off the Kerry coast.

Valentia Coast Guard tasked Flight 115 to Cromane this afternoon, after a man was seen floating in the water off Cromane.

Flight 115, along with the Iveragh Coast Guard, were alerted when a body was seen floating in Castlemaine Harbour this afternoon.


The man was recovered from the water and treated shoreside by paramedics.

However, they failed to resuscitate him and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

It’s believed the man’s boat may have overturned after he suffered a heart attack while out at sea.

Meanwhile, a man who suffered a suspected heart attack on Denny Street, Tralee earlier today has passed away.

Emergency services attended the scene and attempted to resuscitate the man, however, he was taken to University Hospital Kerry where he was pronounced dead.

The Garda Press Office says the man had a heart attack.
