The Belfast Telegraph reports that 71-year-old Vera Flynn became separated from her sister while walking the cliff path at Slieve League in Co Donegal.
According to the Donegal Democrat, it's believed she took a wrong turn on the path and slipped down the cliff face, becoming trapped in a ravine 400 metres from the top.
After a search lasting many hours, the woman was located by the Killybegs Coast Guard cliff rescue team and winched to safety, reportedly uninjured in her ordeal.
“There’s no doubt that this lady’s exceptional fitness helped her in this situation, given that she was out such a long time and it was such a hot day," said Killybegs coastguard press officer Shane McCrudden.
