Details of incident. Plenty to keep the mountain rescue busy. Thank goodness for them.

Reading through some of the stuff there, Christ god love him, horrible.

That rescue team do tremendous work, they must be strong and fit, fireman on steroids

They have advised the any hikers/walkers to download the what3words app.

I have had 3 words for years but it is amazing the number of people have never heard of it. Although these days mine woukd just be the 3 words around the house!

Do people bother with map and compass anymore or just follow well established routes in the Mournes?

Wed a guide with us yesterday, like I said 15 of us, mixed abilities and Id say its fine if you pick the likes of Donard as its well established as is Binnian, but once you start trekking you could get way off track very easily

I always bring a compass and if a new route will have printed out instructions. The compass has been handy many a time

Looks Donard will be out of commission this weekend.  They have been warning about these fires for a few weeks now due to the dry weather, blustery winds and the number of numpties going up and no doubt leaving crap behind them.

There is absolutely no need for it. If you were fit to carry it up the mountain you should be well fit to carry the (much lighter) rubbish back down! Same at the beaches up home - always left full of crap by lazy cnuts in the good weather - beer boxes, bottles, cans, wrappers, shiity nappies!
