An Irish couple have been speaking about their escape from a cruise ship that ran aground off the coast of Italy.
Seamus and Carol Moore from Clonmel, County Tipperary, were on the cruise for a birthday celebration.
Mr Moore said he and his wife got into a lifeboat which was overcrowded.
"My wife thought that when the ship fully lifted, that was when we were going to lose our lives."
"When I managed to climb up onto the roof of the ship, the first thing I noticed was what a beautiful night it was, a balmy night in the Mediterranean.
The Department of Foreign Affairs in the Republic is providing assistance to the couple.
Divers are searching rooms in the Costa Concordia, which is lying on its side 200m (650ft) off Giglio island.
It sank on the first night of a Mediterranean cruise on Friday. Most of its 4,000 passengers and crew reached land by lifeboats but some swam ashore.
Police have questioned the captain.
