The husband of tragic Doolin Coastguard volunteer Caitríona Lucas says he was overcome by shock and disbelief on hearing the tragedy that hit Rescue 116 last week.

Bernard Lucas is speaking amid hopes that a break in the weather today will allow a deep water dive near Mayo in the search for the the remaining missing crew men.

The Air Accident Investigation Unit says it’s recovered tail wreckage around the Lighthouse on Blackrock island.


Bernard traveled to Mayo after the tragedy last week and is due to return again tomorrow to aid in the search operation.
