The Irish Examiner report authorities fear that two men have perished on Ireland’s Carrantuohill. A man in his 40’s fell several hundred feet on Beenkeragh Ridge to his death on the MacGillycuddy Reeks. Authorities have also called off the search for a 22-year-old Swedish man, Olas Jansen after a week. Weather conditions were described as atrocious, with very high winds and rain. The Jansen search involved more than 180 climbers and walkers from clubs north of the border, a Coastguard helicopter, Civil Defence, gardaÃƒÂ and seven sniffer dogs. The team expressed cause for concern about the large numbers of people that climb Carrantuohill during the festive season, especially on St StephenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Day.
