Irish Examiner Reports Tragic Death
The man who died while hill walking in the MacGillicuddy’s Reeks, on Wednesday evening (10th September 2014), has been named as Timothy (Teddy) Clifford, a veterinary surgeon of Annadale Rd, Killorglin, Co Kerry.

His death was not the result of a fall and he was alone when he took ill and died.

Mr Clifford, who was in his 50s and married with a family, was discovered in an unresponsive state by another hill walker on the ridge between Carrauntuohill and Caher mountain.

Members of the Kerry Mountain Rescue Team and a coast guard helicopter from Shannon went to the scene and his body was airlifted to Kerry General Hospital, Tralee.

Conditions on the mountain were good at the time. Local county councillor Michael Cahill said Mr Clifford’s untimely death had come as a huge shock to the Killorglin and Mid-Kerry areas.

“Teddy was a keen walker. He was exceptionally well-known, a popular vet and a good community man who will be sadly missed,” Mr Cahill added.

While responding to this incident, rescue team personnel received another callout to the Devil’s Ladder, Carrauntuohill, as two walkers needed assistance after one of them had fallen.

The team located the walkers and one had sustained a minor limb injury after falling while descending Carrauntuohill. The couple, who were holidaying in Kerry, were assisted down the mountain by the team.

It was the rescue team’s third callout in a week.

On Wednesday, September 3, the team located two male walkers who got lost while descending Carrauntuohill.

A grid reference provided from a smart phone used by the walkers helped establish their location in the Derrynafeana area of Glencar at around midnight. Neither was injured and they were guided from the mountain to safety.
