Woman Passes Away On Galtee Mountains.

A woman, aged in her 50s, has passed away on the summit of the Galtymore Climb, on the Galtee Mountains, in Co Tipperary.

Gardaí confirm that the woman became unwell at around 1:00pm, during a climb up the mountains, having accessed the area from the King’s Yard Knocknagalty, Kilbehenny, Co.Limerick, latter a farm base from which to easily explore the Galtee Mountains and the surrounding countryside.

Her body has now been removed by Units of the local mountain rescue, assisted by the Coast Guard and Garda officers from Cahir, before being taken to Waterford Regional Hospital, where a post mortem will now take place.

A garda spokesperson has confirmed that a file will be prepared for the Coroners court.
