Helicopter landing at the old Carrick Town soccer pitch

A 60-year-old woman has had to be taken to hospital after she fell at Slieve League.

The woman fell and broke her leg while out walking at the beauty spot last Tuesday.


Malin Head Coastguard were then called and the coastguard helicopter and Killybegs coastguard were tasked to the scene.


Ambulance paramedics treated the woman at the scene, and a number of Killybegs coastguard members then stretchered her off the mountain. The casualty was then transferred by helicopter to Sligo hospital.
