This morning, DWMRT members attended a multi-agency search led by SEMRA. Thankfully, the operation ended well, with the person walking off the hill after being located by mountain rescuers.

South Eastern Mountain Rescue Association are happy to report that after an extended search in the Galtee Mountains a missing male walker has been found safe and well this morning. SEMRA were initially tasked on Tuesday evening to search for a male walker who had been reported missing. The initial night search was carried out in heavy mist and very poor visibility. Further search planning took place in the early hours of this morning after the search parties had returned to the road head at the Black Road. Due to the large search area a number of other teams were called to assist. The search resumed at first light this morning. The multi agency operation included Kerry Mountain Rescue Team, Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team, SARDA, Tipperary Civil Defence, Cahir Gardai, Valentia Coast Guard. Rescue 117 was on standby but the cloud and rain prevented it’s deployment on the mountain. The missing walker who had spend the night on the mountain was found by a search party shortly after 10am today high up on the mountain. He was able to walk of the mountain to the Black Road and was transferred by waiting Land Rover to the rescue base. Thanks to all the organisations and locals who helped bring this search to a positive conclusion. SEMRA provide a voluntary mountain rescue service to the South East on a 24hour by 365 days per year basis. The team which was founded in 1977 has been in existence for 40 years this year. The team recently completed it’s 400th callout over the 40 year period.

A huge thank you to everyone who supported our Castlebar Flag Day. Much appreciated. 
The volunteers of MMR are one of the busiest mountain rescue teams in the country, providing  24/7 emergency first response and rescue. We love what we do, but we couldnt do it without the help of the local community.

Justice NI on Twitter
Following the recent incident involving 63 cadets being assisted from the Mourne's, Department of Justice Permanent Secretary Nick Perry paid a visit to the team. As well as acknowledging the teams work on that incident, Nick took the time to chat with members to gain a wider understanding of the team and the extent of the teams entirely voluntary remit. Accordingly, a fair amount of tea and associated nibbles were consumed. Also in attendance were PSNI Newry & Mourne, CGOC Belfast Coastguard, Northern Ireland Ambulance Service and North West Mountain Rescue Team.

SARDA handlers Gerry Tobin (with search dog Dexter) and Michael Grant (with search dog Ziggy) were called out last night to assist South Eastern Mountain Rescue Association with a multi-agency search for a missing hill-walker in the Galtees. The search went on until 1.30 AM in challenging conditions and resumed again at 7 AM this morning. The walker was located safe and well by one of the search parties about three hours later. A great result. Thank you Gerry and Mick for responding!
