Astounding Nolan Fall
The Donegal Mountain Rescue Facebook page includes a slightly blurred photo of Slieve League showing the spot where Cormac Nolan (28) ended up after his fall. I have taken the liberty of reproducing the data on a Peter Walker photo. Based on the DMR report I think that this was one of the most extraordinary escapes in the history of Irish hillwalking. How did Cormac fall such a distance without suffering severe injury? What miracle left him on the edge of a precipice a couple of metres from certain death? Cormac's account of the accident can be heard on RTE (see link below). I hope that Cormac will one day give us exact details of his route. Meanwhile I was delighted to hear that he intends to get back on the hills when things settle down. Well done to all those involved in Cormac's rescue, especially the guys who went down to get him. What an achievement to bring with you for the rest of your lives.
