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

Had I lived to see the demise of the awful and so-called mountainviews messaging service? Callooh! Callay! But no. I just hadn't logged in.

The first flurry of snow here in Armagh. A biting wind. Antenna whiskers taste the chill air and the prospect of picture postcard winter days. In no time at all, the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue will...

Foardal: Beyond a shadow of a doubt
Colin Murphy a week ago.
The French writer Maupassant used to say he had lunch in the Eiffel Tower every day because it was the only place in Paris that he couldn't see the thing. A similar view might be taken of Foardal,...

Summit Summary
Foardal: Simple approach from NW
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy a week ago.
If you want to do this in isolation, the simplest route is from the car park at V882790, and then heading SE directly up the heathery slope for 1km. The summit itself is a broad heathery mound.

  
Summit Summary
Derrygarriff: Fine summit, easily reached.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy a week ago.
There are access issues around Moll's Gap, so suggest starting at car park at V882790 and proceeding up the heathery slopes to Foardal - about 1km to the SE, before walking the 1.5km to the SW to ...
