Mountain Rescue respond to multiple callouts during Bank Holiday

The Dublin and Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team responded to a number of emergency callouts over the Bank Holiday weekend.

The crew, along with personnel from Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue were tasked by the National Ambulance Service to a report of a missing person on June 6.

After contact with the walker and establishing his location, he was picked up safe and well by a Mountain Rescue Response vehicle on a mountain track.

In another callout, both teams responded to a report of male biker who came off his bike mid-way up a track system on Bray head, with the incident being stood down just over an hour later.

The third callout once again saw both teams tasked by the National Ambulance Service to a report of woman in her 70’s who went over on her ankle while walking on a track on the Rocky Valley side of the Sugarloaf.

After two hours and 15 minutes the incident was stood down and the woman received medical attention.

Dublin and Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team (DWMRT) is a volunteer rescue service, available 24 hours per day, every day, to respond to emergencies in upland areas of Dublin, Wicklow, and Louth.
