This is the website of Mountain Rescue Ireland which represents the twelve voluntary mountain rescue teams on this island. Mountain Rescue Ireland is also known as Tarrtháil Sléibhe Éireann and the Irish Mountain Rescue Association (IMRA). We are also a registered charity (CHY10412).
Mountain Rescue is a 24 hour 999/112 emergency service provided by completely unpaid and voluntary teams funded by government funds and public donations.
In an emergency, a mountain rescue team is called-out by phoning 999/112 and asking the emergency operator for 'Mountain Rescue'. You will then be put through to a Garda station where your call will be answered, the situation assessed and, if necessary, the team called out.
All our MRTs come together to provide the first aid coverage for the Pilgrims on Reek Sunday each year.
