DMRT say Muckish rescue was the most difficult in years

The Donegal Mountain Rescue Team responded to four call-outs at the weekend, including a nine hour operation yesterday to rescue a climber who was  stuck on Muckish.

The team says yersterday's rescue of the climber from a small ledge on the north side of Muckish yesterday was the longest and most difficult D.M.R.T. technical rescue in years.

The Sligo based Coastguard Helicopter couldn't get a winch to him, so two DMRT members got to him, and began a nine hour operation to bring him down the mountain.

PRO Brian Murray was one of the first two on the scene............
