Tragedy at Devil's Chimney

Tributes have been paid to the man who tragically died in the area of the Devil's Chimney, Glencar on Monday, August 1.

Named locally as Anthony Doorhy from Loughrea in Galway, he was on a trip to Glencar when he fell 20 metres from a walkway at the Devil's Chimney waterfall.
