A teenage boy has died in a tragic accident after a fall from a coastal cliff on the Dingle Peninsula, as RTÉ News reports.

It’s understood that the 17-year-old slipped and fell while out walking with his family at Cinn Aird, east of Dingle, this afternoon (Sunday 3 January).

A multiagency emergency response was launched, and the crew of the Shannon-based Irish Coast Guard helicopter Rescue 115 located the teenager at the foot of the cliffs.

The body was subsequently recovered by Valentia RNLI and transferred to University Hospital Kerry in Tralee for post-mortem.

In a statement on social media, the lifeboat crew said: “The thoughts of everyone at Valentia RNLI are with the family at this sad time.”
