Family, friends and neighbours of a man missing in West Kerry are continuing their search this afternoon.

It’s feared that John Cunningham, who’s in his fifties and originally from Cork, may have been swept into sea while checking lobster pots.

Friends and family think he may have went missing on Saturday evening, even though the alarm was raised on Monday night and a search began yesterday morning off the tip of the Dingle Peninsula.

The search is continuing today, covering both the coastline and mountainous areas between Dunmore Head and Coumeenole Beach.

Malachy Mac Amhlaoibh from Dún Chaoin says Mr Cunningham is held in high regard locally.
