The Wicklow Way website is proud to donate 7.5% of all online sales to Mountain Rescue Ireland. This represents the twelve voluntary mountain rescue teams on this island. The teams consist of over 365 men and women who provide a voluntary emergency service to people lost or injured while walking or climbing in the mountain ranges of Ireland.
26th March 2011. Mountain Rescue Ireland would like to thank all of the customers on the Dingle, Kerry and Wicklow Way websites over the last 8 months for their part in helping to raise nearly 450 for this registered charity.
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 (Police) station where your call will be answered, the situation assessed and, if necessary, the team called out.
