Moun­tain res­cue team are kept on their toes

Bray People - - Out And About At Christmas Time -

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.
