The team responded and put a search plan in place, locating the two walkers along the Shannagh River.
Team members were able to provide additional insulation for the pair, who were cold and wet but otherwise none the worse for wear.
They were then able to walk them out to team vehicles and transport them back to safety.

Great stuff as always folks

Great work as usual

Excellent job Folks - glad these girls got home safely. My brother and I were camping by Lough Shannagh (but we were well kitted out and prepared). Conditions deteriorated very quickly (from what was glorious weather) with very poor phone signal. Very easy to get caught out ๐Ÿ‘

Fantastic work - a pleasant day that quickly became extremely challenging. Once again, kudos to the team.

Great work well done to all involved

Another difficult rescue....well done team!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Well done everyone

The weather is so unpredictable and ‘Summer’ walkers are not prepared! It’s so reassuring to know you are there...well done everyone!

Great photo.

Great photo.

Great work folks

Well done team..so lucky to have you

Well done to everyone involved.

Well done team

Unreal,you guys need medals for your work๐Ÿ‘

Well done team . Been busy for you all . ๐Ÿท๐Ÿฅพ

Great team๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

Glad everyone ok. Weather can change so quickly - so important to have good quality waterproof/gortex clothing and equipment.

It’s nice to know they are there if needed. Well done team.

Great work again guys. Well done. We were at Spelga on Friday night and it rained constantly thru the night. I don't think any waterproofs could have withstood that either. Wild weather for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

Another job well done team

Well done guys!

Well done guys๐Ÿ‘

Sandra Hollingsworth look how things changed!

Well done again! ๐Ÿ’œ So many underestimate the power of the elements!

Search and Rescue Dog Association (Ireland)
Yesterday, at the invitation of The Irish Coast Guard, some of our members attended a joint training exercise at Dunabrattin Head, Bunmahon, Co. Waterford. The exercise centered around various cliff, shoreline and water based exercises and involved coordinated responses from land, sea and air. It was a great opportunity for our members to interact with the agencies based in the area and for our dogs and handlers to further familiarize themselves with the sights and sounds of the aircraft. Thanks again for your welcome yesterday and we look forward to working with you in the future.
