Share this article


Fears are growing for an Irish couple caught up in Greek wildfires which have killed at least 76 people.

Newlywed Brian O'Callaghan-Westropp and Zoe Holohan married last Thursday before travelling to Mati in Greece on their honeymoon.

The pair got separated in the panic while trying to escape flames in the seaside resort of Mati on Monday.

Zoe is now being treated for burns in hospital while her new husband is still missing.

A doctor walks the charred streets of Mati, a seaside resort town east of Athens.

The Department of Foreign Affairs has confirmed it's offering consular assistance to a number of Irish citizens in Greece.

Irish citizens in region should keep up to date with local media + follow advice of Greek authorities in affected areas. Irish citizens affected can contact Irish Embassy in Athens +30 210 723 2771 or my Dept +353 1 408 2000.</p>&mdash; Simon Coveney (@simoncoveney) <a href="https://twitter.com/simoncoveney/status/1021799973346791424?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">July 24, 2018</a></blockquote>
