On Wednesday, July 22nd at approximately 16.00hrs both the Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team and the Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team were tasked by the HSE to help with a fallen climber in Dalkey Quarry on the outskirts of Dublin.
A pair of Polish climbers were on a difficult climb on the upper cliffs when the leader took a serious fall and his second raised the alarm.
Dublin Fire Brigade and the Coastguard were also on scene and a stretcher was lowered to where the climber had fallen so he could be evacuated. Initial care was given from a Doctor and Advanced Paramedics before the man was lowered to the ground.
He was then transferred to a waiting HSE ambulance for transfer to hospital and definitive care. The incident was stood down just after 18.00.
Mountain Rescue would like to thank all agencies involved including: The HSE, Dublin Fire Brigade, Wicklow Rapid Response, the Irish Coastguard and the Gardaí.
