An off-duty Garda has died after getting into difficulty while diving off Wexford's Hook Head.
The father of four in his forties was part of a team that was diving a wreck not far from the Saltee Islands.
The alert was raised shortly after noon today as he returned to the surface after a dive.
He was treated by colleagues at the scene and airlifted to University Hospital Waterford where he has since been pronounced dead.
