The walkers informed MR personnel via mobile phone that they could see a lake from their position. Two hill parties were sent in to find them. One party went to Kelly’s Lough and the second to Art’s Lough. The party that arrived at Kelly’s Lough met the disoriented Hillwalkers and brought them back down the mountain to safety. The operation was then stood down.
Mountain Rescue would like to thank all agencies involved including: Search And Rescue Dog Association (S.A.R.D.A) and An Garda Siochanna.
