Mountain rescue team are kept on their toes
MEMBERS OF the Glen of Imaal Mountain Rescue and Dublin/Mountain Rescue teams were both called out on Monday afternoon, their third day of activity since Christmas Day.
At 2.48 p.m. the two teams were contacted by the gardaí about a female hill-walker who needed some attention having suffered a lower leg injury.
She was out hill-walking with a group of other walkers on Mullacor Mountain, between Glendalough and Glenmalure.
While heading towards the Wicklow Way track for Glenmalure, she slipped on some ice and sustained a lower leg injury.
Fortunately the casualty was close to the forestry tracks, so she was quickly evacuated by mountain rescue personnel and transferred by an ERHA ambulance on to hospital.
