At 14:55 on Sunday, January 27th, while callout 7 was underway a second tasking came in from An Garda Síochána to locate a hillwalker who became disorientated in poor visibility while descending Lugnaquilla.
The hillwalker took the correct course of action and phoned for mountain rescue (MR). UsingSarloc Rescue, MR was able to locate the walker and send personnel to that position. Once located, the walker was assessed for injury and then guided down the mountain via Fraughan Rock Glen. The operation was stood down at 17:52.
