UPDATE: The team has dealt with 7 incidents since our last post, including a couple of medical emergencies on Carrauntoohil, a lower leg injury on the Old Kenmare Road and partial callouts to Cnoc na Toinne (Zigzags), Esknamucky and the Black Valley. 
As the days are shortening and temperatures are starting to drop from unusually tropical to usually Irish (!), we would like to remind hillgoers to make sure they pack a headtorch with spare batteries, warm clothes and raingear in addition to food and water, first aid kit for their group, fully charged mobile phone and a map and compass (preferably a map of the area youre walking in! ๐Ÿ˜‰). Know your route in advance and let someone know where you are intending to go, with a rough estimate of your return time. If you or anyone in your group gets into difficulty at any stage, call 999 or 112 and ask for Mountain Rescue. Fan Slรกn.

A great evenings training with the team this week as we worked on our rope work in Mamore Gap. This included focus on setting up an abseil suitable for the team to descend to a casualty who has become stranded on steep terrain. This is vital training for the members of the team. The evening was a tough one, with strong winds and stormy conditions. As difficult as it is to train in rough weather, it will only add to our training and prepare us for all manner of rescue. 
As the weather become wilder and winter begins to close in, always be mindful of your travels on our hills. As always we recommend warm clothing and correct footwear, as well as plenty of food and drink and a light.

Mayo Mountain Rescue
Call-out # 46
11th September, 2022
12.01
The Mayo Mountain Rescue team were tasked to assist a woman in her 30 s who had a nasty fall below the cone on Croagh Patrick. She had suffered injuries to head, ribs and hip and was in severe pain.
She was assessed by a first response team and warmed up. When the stretcher party arrived, she was taken down promptly and handed over to the crew of the waiting ambulance.
Sincere thanks to the two Louisburgh ladies who gave assistance to our patient, keeping her warm and offering moral support while waiting for the team to arrive. 
And of course thanks to the 15 members of this stalwart team who dropped what they were doing on a Sunday and came to help. 
The team were stood down at 15.10.

September Callout Updates: 
24 โ€“ 26/09/22: At 0159hrs this morning a request came from police to locate a walker who was long overdue, having started a challenge walk in the early hours of Sunday morning. The team responded and were implementing a search plan along with assistance  from SARDA IN when the missing person turned up safe and well elsewhere. 15 members responded and the team stood down at 0602hrs.
Prior to that, at 1710hrs on Saturday we were asked to assist a walker who sustained a lower leg injury in Donard Forest. He was located, assessed, treated  and carried via stretcher to a team vehicle for transport to the roadside and onward transit to hospital. 11 Members responded and stood down at 1901hrs. 
On Sunday morning at 1010hrs the team were contacted regarding a deer that had been found by members of the public, snagged in a gate at the Donard forest boundary. Thankfully, by the team members arrived on scene to assess the situation, the animal had been freed by others. 
Septembers other incidents to date have included: 
20/09/21: Members of the public reported finding a packed rucsac abandoned on Slieve Bearnagh. The incident was investigated by a team coordinator and the pack retrieved but with no reports of missing or injured person no further action was taken.
19/09/21: A runner reported injured around Ott Mountain was assisted to safety by family member enabling the team to stand down before a full call was instigated.
10/09/21: A report of lights, possibly signalling distress on Binnian was monitored for a time and assessed as requiring no further action.
1/09/21: A call to assist a walker lost in darkness in Castlewellan Forest. Fortunately as the team were gathering information other members of the public came upon the person and guided them to safety. 
Along with a training exercise with Irish Coastguard Rescue Helicopter 116 on Saturday morning in the Silent Valley area itโ€™s fair to say that the team had a busy few days. Having passed the autumn equinox, we will be experiencing declining  daylight and cooler conditions in the weeks and months to come and hill-goers should adapt their planning and the kit they carry accordingly. Advice can be found here: https://www.mournemrt.org/mountain-safety/

**September Callouts and Training**

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ชAs Irelandโ€™s largest and longest-standing search dog team, SARDA Ireland are well used to travelling across Ireland to search for missing people. 

๐Ÿ•Since our last dog find at the start of the month, where Trakr found a missing person in Co. Cork, we have been tasked to searches in Dublin, Mayo, Donegal and Limerick. 

๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸปIt is not just the time, dedication and knowledge of our members that enable our dog teams to do this job, it is the donations we receive from the public. We honestly couldnโ€™t do this without you, so thank you to everyone who has donated over the last number of years.

โ›ฐ๐Ÿ“ธ We also held our September National Training Weekend in Co. Mayo for the first time ever! A big thank you to Killary Adventure Centre for hosting us and the dogs for the weekend, and to the local farmers who graciously gave us land that we could use for training. It was also a pleasure to welcome some members of Mayo Mountain Rescue to our training session! Have a look at the photos of our dogs, handlers and dogs bodies in action!
