An Irish woman has died while on a charity trip to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.

The 35-year-old is believed to be from the Cork/Waterford area.

The woman was due to travel to Tanzania for the charity fund-raising climb.

She died on currently unknown causes while being attended to by a doctor.

Her family have been informed of her death, and the Department Of Foreign Affairs will be liasing with the family to begin the planning of the return of her remains back to Ireland.
