Achill Cliff Fall Death
A 22-YEAR-OLD Finnish student plunged to his death from an Achill Island cliff this afternoon.
The young man fell over the cliff at Atlantic Drive at midday. He was with a female friend at the time and she raised the alarm by calling into a local house.
The Achill Lifeboat, Achill Coast Guard Unit and the Coast Guard helicopter from Sligo immediately began to conduct a search. A spokesman from the Malin Head Coast Guard told TheJournal.ie that the rescue teams could see his body but could not reach him due to inclement sea and weather conditions.
The search has now been called off and will resume in the morning “at first light”.
The victims parents are in Finland and have been informed of the tragic accident.
( Source: TheJournal.ie ) Comment - If the reported site of the accident is correct this appears to be located well away from the huge sea cliffs to the west

While not very challenging, recent felling means the views along the way and from the summit are pleasant enough. A nice spot for a lunchtime walk.
