A man died while on Carrauntoohil in County Kerry yesterday.

The coast guard lifted the body of a man in his 50s off of the mountain at 5.30pm.

It is believed that he was local and Gardai said that they were not fully aware of the circumstances of his death last night but they do not suspect foul play.

A local coroner has been notified and a post mortem investigation will be carried out later today to determine the cause of death.
