Tributes have been paid to the man whose body was recovered from the water in Killorglin last night.
Around 10 o'clock last night, emergency services were alerted that a man, in his 50s, got into difficulty in the water in Cromane Bay.
It's understood the man fell from a boat; he was taken from the water and pronounced dead a short time later.
Fianna Fáil councillor Michael Cahill, a friend of the deceased man, says the whole area is in a state of shock.
He says the deceased was a sincere gentleman, who was extremely hard-working.
Cllr Cahill says he sends his condolences to the man's family.
