THE family of tragic fisherman Kodie Healy whose body was found at sea in Cork have made a touching request to thank the emergency services.

The 24-year-old was missing since Wednesday evening after he failed to return to port following his day's activities.



Now the family have asked mourners to send any donations in lieu to the R.N.L.I or to L.A.S.T (Lost At Sea Tragedies) as they prepare to lay Kodie to rest.

His funeral will take place on Thursday at the Church of the Seven Sacraments in Lowertown.

The local fishing community from Goleen were out in force since Kodie, whose father John is also a fisherman, vanished last week.

His body was located at sea on Sunday and was brought ashore by the Naval Service.

The alarm was raised by his dad with Valentia Coast Guard launching a search at 8pm on Wednesday night.

On Thursday, wreckage was found on Carbery Island which was thought to be the vessel used by the young fisherman.

Other organisations who were part of the search team included the Gardai, the Naval Service and the RNLI.

The Coast Guard helicopter R115 and the naval ship LE George Bernard Shaw were both used in the search.
