We received some sad news recently. Hugo, one of our retired search dogs passed away last week. Hugo and his handler Jarlath Folan (who is a member of Galway Mountain Rescue Team) qualified as a search dog team in March 2010. They also successfully passed their re-testing in October 2011. During his career, Hugo attended several call-outs with Jarlath and had one remarkable find to his name. He retired from search work in 2014 after his arthritis got too much to handle. Since then, as well as resting on his laurels, he was helping out with Jarlaths new trainee dog, Syd. Thanks for your service, Hugo.

Today we responded to a request from the National Ambulance Service to assist their paramedics with an injured hillwalker at Coumshingaun in the Comeragh Mountains of Co. Waterford.  Given the nature of the injury suffered by the casualty & the difficulty of the carryout, the Coastguard Rescue Helicopter from Waterford (Rescue 117) was asked to assist. Thanks to everyone for their assistance & we wish the casualty a good recovery.
