At 20:39 on Saturday, May 25th, Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team and Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team were tasked by An Garda Síochána to investigate the sighting of a flare in the Devil's Glen.
The flare, witnessed by two independent parties, was seen over forestry in the Devil's Glen. Mountain rescue personnel responded and searched the area, looking for signs of someone in distress. The operation was stood down shortly after midnight with nothing found. Our thanks to Ashford Gardaí for their help.
