We met the Mountain Rescue Dog Team out training in November '04 as we crossed the road between Slieve Muck and Pigeon Rock Mountain in difficult weather conditions with low cloud much about and the cloud base at less than 400 metres. Their enthusiasm is amazing and should be greatly admired. Navigation to the summit is just a matter of following the friendly wall. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/387/comment/1311/
