Mountain Rescue Volunteers on both sides of the border responded to over 270 call-outs in 2017

 

Hikers and climbers are being urged to be prepared when they head for the hills this year.

 

It comes as 'end-of-year' figures show that Mountain Rescue volunteers on both sides of the border responded to over 270 call-outs in 2017.

 

Close to 90 people got lost while hiking and climbing last year - with more than 30 searches carried out on Ireland's highest mountain, Carrauntoohil, in County Kerry.
