A young boy remains in a serious condition in hospital after a boating accident in Cork.

The 14 year old sustained head injuries after a sailing boom struck him in Schull yesterday morning.

Separately in Dublin, a man in his 40’s was taken to hospital with serious head injuries after a kite-surfing accident off the coast of Sutton.

The Irish Coastguard is advising people to be extra careful on the water.
