The cloud lifted and rain cleared for thousands of pilgrims who made the annual climb to take mass on the summit of Croagh Patrick today.
The pilgrims began their 764-metre climb at first light.
The Air Corps and Coast Guard were on standby along with 140 rescue volunteers who had a busy day treating several people for injuries.
Of the 14 registered casualties, one pilgrim was airlifted from the mountain.
