Sligo/Leitrim Mountain Rescue were called out to Knocknarea Mountain this afternoon after a woman sustained injuries when she fell while out walking. The woman, who was in her 40s and from Glenfarne in Co. Leitrim, had been out with a friend when she slipped on some loose rock on the descent from Knockrea, and injured her lower leg.

The Mountain Rescue Team were tasked to the scene, along with ambulance staff. The woman was taken down safely and brought to Sligo General Hospital for treatment. Alan Sayers from Sligo/Leitrim Mountain Rescue said the incident is a reminder of the extreme care needed while out hiking.
