Woman airlifted after Horn Head fall

A woman was airlifted to hospital last evening after falling while hill walking near Horn Head. The woman was part of a group of five walking the Mc Swyne's Gun Loop on Horn Head near Dunfanaghy when she fell and sustained a suspected ankle fracture.

Malin Coastguard tasked the Mulroy Coastguard Cliff Rescue Unit, the Donegal Mountain Rescue Team and the Sligo Rescue Helicopter. Just before teatime, the woman was airlifted to Sligo General Hospital, while the Mulroy Bay and DMRT personnel escorted the rest of the group to safety.
