Mountain Rescue - Lugnaquilla - 19:00 28th Oc
At 19:00 hours on Sunday 28th October An Garda Siochana requested the assistance of the Dublin & Wicklow Mountain rescue team and the Glen of Imaal Red Cross mountain rescue team in locating two overdue walkers in the Lugnaquilla area of Wicklow.

At approximately 13:00 hrs on Sunday 28th of October two experienced hill walkers departed for a day in the hills with the intention of covering the Ring of Imaal. The walkers were following a route description using a guide and were also equipped with a map and compass. Both walkers were appropriately dressed for the current weather conditions. Shortly after passing the summit of Camenabologue the weather closed in on the party and as a result they missed the table track.

Tracking back to the summit of Camenabologue and upon realising they had become disorientated the group made contact with mountain rescue via the 999 emergency number. Members from both the Dublin & Wicklow mountain rescue team and Glen of Imaal Red Cross mountain rescue team responded by deploying hill parties and team 4 x 4 vehicles to the scene along side members of the Defence Forces. Contact with the hill walkers by mobile phone was intermittent due to poor mobile coverage in the area. The hill walkers were asked to remain where they were in order to make searching easier. Mountain rescue personnel were able to locate the hill walkers at approximately 22:45. After a brief medical examination by mountain rescue medics both hill walkers were escorted back to the original departure point. The incident was stood down at 23:47

The Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team & The Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue team would like to thank all those involved in this operation including an Garda Siochana and The Defence Forces.
