The families of two men who lost their lives in separate falls in the Mourne Mountains said last night they died doing what they loved.

Former senior policeman Robbie Robinson was a vastly experienced climber.

His widow Barbara (62) said it gave her some comfort that he was “doing what he loved best” when he died in a freak accident.

And Bernie Byrne from Camlough said her husband Sean “had loved the Mournes — all of the things about them”.
