The search for a missing swimmer off the Bundoran coast is entering its third day.

The man got into difficulty while swimming in the sea on Tuesday evening.

A major search operation involving the Bundoran RNLI, the Killybegs rescue boat and the Coast Guard helicopter based in Sligo was called off at around 9pm last night.

The search is expected to resume later this morning and members of the public are being asked to stay away from Tullan Strand.
