Hikers walking up the Mourne mountains at the weekend may have spotted this colourful sight, erected as a show of support for the victims of the Nepalese earthquake.

Dr Nigel Hart, one of those behind the endeavour, said Slieve Donard had been “festooned with prayer flags”, with three Nepalis among the 100-plus charity walkers taking part in a series of hikes.
