"The cliff was about 40 feet in height, it was like falling off a two storey building," Mr O'Kelly explained.

Naomi Myers and her partner attended Sea Sessions that night and were strolling on Tullan beach around 3am when they came across the scene.

"Upon our return across the beach around half three, we noticed some commotion at the base of the cliff," Naomi said.

"We discovered that a young concert goer had fallen some forty feet down the cliff onto rocks on the beach below. A team of paramedics, RNLI Lifeboat crews and Gardaí were making a tremendous effort to treat and save the girl.

"With the help of a stretcher fitted golf buggy, they quickly moved her up a dirt track to an ambulance at the top of the cliff," Naomi said.

"Funnily, on our walk around the beautiful cliff path on Friday, my partner remarked that the path lacked adequate stewarding or warning signage, given its proximity to the festival campsite."
