An Irish man has died while climbing Mount Everest

An Irish man has died while climbing Mount Everest.

It comes as the family of Seamus Lawless who went missing on the mountain a week ago call off the search for his remains.

Brendan O’Loughlin reported on the situation:

Everest Mountaineer and Author Pat Falvey says the whole Irish climbing community is in shock.

He says their sympathy is with the families of Wicklow’s Seamus Lawless who went missing on the mountain last week – and Galway man Kevin Hynes, whose death is being reported this evening.
