At 16:41hrs, Dublin / Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team and Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue were tasked by An Garda Síochána to a report of two persons who had climbed Lugnaquilla earlier in the day.
On their descent, the two walkers became disoriented in the mist and subsequently found themselves now in the approaching darkness and lost. Although communications with the lost party were difficult the team were able to locate their position using SARLOC technology. With their location positioning them close to a track, a Mountain Rescue Response vehicle made its way to the walkers and then returned them back to their cars.
Team was stood down at 17:53hrs.
Duration of incident: 1 hour, 12 minutes.
Thank you to all the agencies involved.
