Gardaí have confirmed that equipment discovered on a Mayo beach over the weekend belonged to Rescue 116 crewmember Ciaran Smith.
He was one of four people to die in the tragic coastguard helicopter crash off the west coast in March.
Ciaran's sister, Orla Smith, addresses the crowd during a wreath laying ceremony at Black Sod, Co Mayo.
His body and that of Paul Ormsby have not been found.
The search is still ongoing and gardaí have urged anyone who finds anything of interest to report it.
