An investigation is taking place following the death of a person whilst swimming close to one of the county's most popular scenic spots at the weekend. It is the second such water tragedy to occur in Co Cavan in as many weeks, and has prompted a renewed reminder over water safety in the region.

The latest drowning incident happened on Saturday evening last, June 2, at Rann Point, located on the shores of Lough Oughter seven kilometres east of Cavan town and two kilometres north of Killykeen Forest Park. The spot is popular as a launch site among anglers fishing the Erne river system.

Its understood the person who drown was a Ukrainian-native, attached to a party who were socialising in the area at the time.

After getting into difficulties, the male was transported to Cavan General Hospital, but passed away on Monday, June 4.
