Body of missing Carlow man found

The body of a missing Carlow man has been found.

33-year-old Harold Keogh from Myshall has been missing since last Sunday.

His car and personal belongings were found in the sea-side town of Courtown in Wexford yesterday prompting searches in the area and an appeal from the Gardai for information on his whereabouts.

Denis Coughlan is the search and recovery officer with the sub aqua club who were conducting searches of Courtown Harbour this morning at the request of the family.

The remains were actually found by a fishing trawler that that wasn’t officially involved in the search about seven miles off the Wexford coast.

It has been formally identified as Harold Keogh byt family members after being brought to shore by the RNLI lifeboat.

Denis says that the family seemed relieved to have a least recovered Harold’s body without the need for a long-drawn-out search.
