Kevin Hynes

  • An Irish man has died while climbing Mount Everest.

    The 360 Expeditions group says Kevin Hynes from Galway passed away this morning.

    It's described the 56-year-old as "one of the strongest and most experienced climbers" on its team.

    Kevin's death comes just a week after Irish Professor Seamus Lawless went missing on Everest.

    The 39-year-old from Bray in County Wicklow fell while returning from the peak of the world's highest mountain.
