On Sunday the 19th of July at approximately 18.25hrs both the Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team and the Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team were tasked by An Garda Siochanna to come to the assistance of a man who had become disoriented while walking through Gorse near Bray Head.
Both the Coast Guard Helicopter Rescue 116 and the Garda Air Support Helicopter assisted in finding his location. Once this was done Mountain Rescue personnel walked in to where he had been located and escorted him back out. The operation was then stood down.
Mountain Rescue would like to thank all agencies involved including: The Irish Coast Guard and the Garda Air Support Unit.
