Members of the Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue and Dublin & Wicklow teams used ropes to descend approximately 200 meters to the mens location from the ‘boardwalk’, a manmade pathway above the upper lake cliffs in Glendalough. The two men were assisted down to the lakeshore below and from here they were evacuated using the Wicklow Mountains National Park & Wildlife Service boat.
Both men were thankfully uninjured. The rescue teams ended the operation just after 10:30pm last night.
The rescue teams would like to remind visitors to the park to pay careful attention to signs warning of the dangers in entering the St. Kevins Bed area, and to ensure they’re suitably equipped and experienced.
