Lugnaquillia (20/11/11)

Two hill walkers from Bray, Co. Wicklow on Sunday 20th November, 2011 were unsure of their whereabouts and rang for the emergency services at 5pm.  The two men, a father and son aged 48 and 18 years respectively were walking from the Baravore car park up to Lugnaquilla by the Fraughan Rock glen. On their return the weather turned and visibility became poor. They got disorientated and after realising that they were in trouble they rang Mountain Rescue for assistance.
Both the Glen of Imaal and Dublin Wicklow mountain rescue teams responded to the call and were able to meet the two walkers quickly and walked them down to an awaiting 4 x4 rescue vehicle. The two walkers were uninjured and returned in good spirits.
