140 rescue volunteers are taking part in the biggest co-ordinated mountain challenge of the year.

It's Reek Sunday - with barefoot pilgrims taking their place among an estimated 15,000 people who will climb Croagh Patrick in County Mayo today, as part of a Catholic tradition dating back 1,500 years.

Keelan Moran from the Order of Malta Ambulance Corps says hundreds of volunteers are standing by to help pilgrims complete their challenge.
