Tribute to Mick Kellet
- 28th December 2014
The Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team wish to express our deepest sympathy to the friends and family of Mick Kellet, who passed away recently. Mick was one of the founder members of both Mountain Rescue Ireland and the Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team.
Mick is well known in the Irish outdoor community and by turns spent his time hill walking and hill running on many I.M.R.A events. He spent many years involved in orienteering and will be missed by his friends in the Great Eastern Navigators. Mick also enjoyed passing on his knowledge to young people who shared his passion for the outdoors
In early February of this year he received a well earned Distinguished Service Award at the Mountain Rescue Ireland AGM which was held in Coolmoney Camp in the Glen of Imaal in the company of many friends from Ireland’s M.R community.
His humour, wit and wisdom will be greatly missed and he will always be remembered as a true legend of the Irish Mountains
Rest In Peace Mick
