Was fishing at Arthurstown Pier this evening and we noticed an older woman was looking out to sea, talking worriedly to her friends about her husband being out at sea. I couldn't pick up much but she was very distressed and she was saying that her husband went out in a small blue boat to fish around Hook Head. She was on the phone to someone, presumably the coast guard, saying he had been out all day and was supposed to be home at six (this was at 7:30pm). We stayed on for another 45 minutes and didn't see any signs of a coast guard. I guess there are some strong currents out around the Peninsula and there were some problems? Perhaps he drifted off course? I live near the hook peninsula and the weather was fairly settled today, overcast, light breeze then it started to rain at about 6.
If anyone could perhaps find out more about this I'd greatly appreciate it, the woman was very upset.

Didn't hear anything else, now that I think about it I definitely would have heard something, he probably was just home late!
