Large group of hillwalkers rescued from Galtee Mountains in Co. Tipperary

By Aileen Hahesy

A large hiking group was rescued from the Galtee Mountains by members of the South Eastern Mountain Rescue Group last night (Sunday).

The 27 people from a Co. Cork based mountain walking group became stranded in the Galteemore area of the mountain range due to bad weather conditions and very poor visibility. They successfuly made their way off the summit but once daylight faded they found shelter until mountain rescue volunteers were able to locate them and escort them off the mountain.
