85 year old man is rescued by Ballybunion Sea and Rescue

An 85 year old man was rescued shortly before 8 o clock this morning by Ballybunion Sea and Cliff Rescue. It’s understood that he went to the bog in the town land of Leeamore, Ballylongford to get some turf but the onset of darkness caused him to become disorientated and got lost. The man was taken to Kerry General Hospital. Frank O Connor of Ballybunion Sea and Cliff Rescue says the man had kept out of the wind and rain by curling up in a corner and was in good spirits when found.
