The body of a man was found during a search for a Canadian diver off Malin Head, Donegal, last night.

The man went missing during a deep-sea dive on Saturday. 

His body was recovered at the wreck where he had been diving. 

The man went on a chartered dive to explore the Pinto wreck, which is 65 metres below the surface.

After the divers got into difficulty, the Lough Swilly life boat was called to assistance. 

This is the second body to be recovered in Donegal this week, after the remains of a missing hill walker were found in the Derryveagh Mountains.



Mike O’Shea has become the first person to fly from Mizen Head to Malin Head on a paramotor – a powered glider.

Supported by Vodafone Ireland to mark the launch of their Vodafone Firsts programme, this was a dream of Mike’s ever since he started paramotoring.

Talking about his experience, he said: “I’m always on the lookout for new challenges and the chance to take on a new adventure. Becoming the first person to paramotor from Mizen to Malin has been a personal ambition since I first took up this sport.”

The three day trip took Mike from Cork to Donegal – a distance of over 590km – and reached heights of up to 10,000 feet.

Strong winds and dodgy weather conditions might have put many of us off the challenge but Mike was not to be discouraged: “I’ve achieved many things in my life but this certainly ranks up there with the best of them. And the great thing is that I can also share it with anyone who wants to watch!”

Fair play to Mike, don’t think we would have the nerve!
