A WOMAN out walk­ing with friends on Easter Mon­day was res­cued by moun­tain res­cue per­son­nel af­ter she suf­fered a sus­pected frac­tured an­kle.

At 3.47 p.m., both the Dublin Wick­low Moun­tain Res­cue Team and Glen of Imaal Moun­tain Res­cue Team were tasked by gar­dai to as­sist the hill­walker, who hurt her­self when she fell on the Spinc trail in Glen­dalough.

The teams man­aged to reach the scene within 30 min­utes and a medic as­sessed the woman’s in­juries be­fore she was car­ried, in a stretcher, down the steps from the Spinc to a wait­ing moun­tain res­cue ve­hi­cle.

The walker was brought to the Na­tional Park In­for­ma­tion Of­fice, trans­ferred to an am­bu­lance and brought on to hos­pi­tal.

The in­ci­dent was stood down at 6.15 p.m.
