At 15:39 on Saturday, January 5th, Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team and Glen of Imaal Mountain Rescue Team were tasked by An Garda Síochána to assist a hillwalker in Glendalough.
The walker fell and sustained a lower leg injury while walking on the Blue Trail. Mountain rescue (MR) personnel assessed and treated the hiker’s injury. The patient was then assisted to an MR vehicle and transported to a waiting ambulance. The incident was stood down at 16:22. We’d like to thank the National Ambulance Service (NAS) for their assistance.
