Search and rescue group to be set up in Abbeyfeale

A local search and rescue group is to be set up in Abbeyfeale in memory of teenager Ricky Loughnane. Ricky went missing from his home at Meenahela just before Christmas and a massive search operation was launched in the area to find the 18 year old. After 11 days of searching Ricky`s body was found in a slurry pit not far from his home. Now those who took part in the search operation are keen that something positive should come from the tragedy and a public meeting will be held in abbeyfeale tomorrow night to set up a local search and rescue group.
