Hill Walker found safe and well on the Galtees

A hill walker has been located safe and well after being reported missing on the Galtee mountains.

The 54 year old was reported missing yesterday evening after calling his wife to warn his battery was running low.

A search by Mountain rescue groups, aided by Valentia coastguard and dog crews was launched last night but was stood down overnight due to heavy fog.

It resumed at first light with the man being located just before 11 this morning.

Speaking to Tipp FM News, Jimmy Barry from the South East Mountain Rescue gave details of the rescue mission.
