A man in his 60s has died after falling 20m into a stream near Ireland’s largest waterfall on the Sligo-Leitrim border.

The man was reportedly walking with his partner in the Devil’s Chimney area of ​​Glencar last night when he fell.

Gardai told Independent.ie officers along with other rescue workers were “involved in an operation after a man in his 60’s suffered a fall from the Devil’s Chimney in Glencar, Co Sligo last night.

“The man was found but later pronounced dead at the scene.”

After the man was reported missing around 7 p.m., a major search and rescue operation was launched.

The man is believed to have been visiting the area from Co Galway.

The Devil’s Chimney is a popular mountain hike that is a 130m climb. The waterfall is called Sruth in Aghaidh An Aird which means stream against the height. This refers to the appearance of the waterfall blowing upwards in certain weather conditions.

The walk is said to only take around an hour and is rated as ‘moderate’, according to SligoWalks.ie
