Body recovered from the River Nore in search for man missing for 30 days
A body has been discovered in the search for a man missing in the River Nore for the past 30 days, the gardai have confirmed.
The man was reported missing on Monday, February 10 and a search began on the section of the River Nore close to John’s Bridge in the city, where it is believed he went in.
The search for the man was severely hampered by Storms Ciara, Dennis, and Jorge and the conditions they brought about.
It was deemed not safe to dive at any point in the last three weeks as the River Nore was carrying debris, experiencing strong currents and a high-swell, while visibility underwater was poor.
However, divers were able to enter the water over the weekend and resume the search.
Members of the Garda Diving Team, Kilkenny Civil Defence, Kilkenny Sub Aqua Club and the Kilkenny Gardai all assisted in the search.
