An air, land and sea search was mounted last night amid concerns for the man whose car was found close to Blackhead Lighthouse in the north of the county.

The search was concentrated in the area around the lighthouse where the man’s car was found last night. It’s understood however that the car may have been there for most of the day.

After the car was located, gardaí requested assistance from the Irish Coast Guard to carry out a search of the area. Watch officers at the Coast Guard’s marine rescue coordination centre on Valentia Island in Kerry mounted a search operation at around 8.00pm.

U.S. Resumes Large-Scale Operations Against ISIS in Northern Syria

  U.S. Resumes Large-Scale Operations Against ISIS in Northern Syria United States troops have resumed large-scale counterterrorism missions against the Islamic State in northern Syria, military officials say, nearly two months after President Trump’s abrupt order to withdraw American troops opened the way for a bloody Turkish cross-border offensive. The new operations show that despite Mr. Trump’s earlier demand for a complete withdrawal of all American forces from Syria, the president still has some 500 troops in the country, many of them in combat, for the foreseeable future.“Over the next days and weeks, the pace will pick back up against remnants of ISIS,” Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr.

While there was no indication where the man might be, searches were carried along the main R477 coast road; north and south along the rocky coastline and in the area of Galway Bay around the lighthouse.

Later, some personal items, believed to belong to the missing man, were discovered on the shore close to the water by a Doolin Coast Guard search team. It’s understood the items included a set of walking sticks.

With no trace of the man being found, the search was stood down for the night but is expected to resume this morning.
