A male swimmer was rescued after spending 10 hours at sea off the coast of Kerry yesterday.
He was rescued after a man walking his dog noticed clothes on the beach but could not see a swimmer.
Valentia Coast Guard was alerted and they informed Fenit Lifeboat, Dingle Search and Rescue and the Rescue 115 helicopter from Shannon.
At approx 8.15pm last night almost 10 hours after the initial call Fenit Lifeboat saw the man in the sea roughly three miles from Castlegregory.
The man was taken from the water and brought to University Hospital Kerry where he was treated for hypothermia.
