Two people rescued on Muckish

The Donegal Mountain Rescue Team has rescued two people from Muckish.

The 44 year old man and 33 year old woman had climbed the Miners' Track, and were walking on the top of the mountain with their dog when they became lost in heavy fog.

The rescue team responded to a 999 call at 6.30, and found the climbers at 8.30.

They were wet and cold but uninjured, and did not need medical attention.

Brian Murray is PRO of the Donegal Mountain Rescue Team. He says the Miners' Track is almost impossible to find in the fog............
