The 62-year-old man, from Foxford, Co Mayo, had been visiting the Cragg area of Birdhill, Co Tipperary, when he went for a walk last Thursday morning. The alarm was raised when he hadn't returned home in 48 hours.

After almost three hours' searching, he was found in woodland a short distance from the main Limerick to Dublin road.

A Coast Guard spokesperson said: " It is remarkable how well he appeared when he was located. Obviously, we were very relieved."
