Sadness has descended on south Donegal as the body of David Maguire (38), who went missing on New Years Day, has been found after 10 days of searching.

His body is understood to have been recovered from the water near Towney Pier, Kilcar.

While the body has yet to be formally identified, searchers have concluded that it is Mr. Maguire. A post-mortem will take place in the coming days.

During the 10 day search there was an enormous effort on behalf of Donegal Mountain Rescue, Coast Guard, Gardaí, Civil Defence, and locals.
