A couple who became stranded on the Mourne Mountains got engaged while waiting to be rescued.

The Mourne Mountain Rescue Team received a call at 9.42pm on Sunday that two walkers needed assistance. A total of 10 members of the team responded to the call and were stood down at 1.10am on Monday.

Writing on its Facebook page, a spokesman for the rescue team said: “The couple had been descending from Slieve Lamagan when they got disoriented in a combination of extremely poor visibility and failing light.

“The team was able to identify their approximate position between Upper and Lower Cove. After a short search, the team located the couple and escorted them to team vehicles for transfer to road access.

"To add to a happy ending, the couple got engaged while waiting... And we’d the pleasure of being the first to congratulate them!”
