The Irish Coast Guard Cliff Rescue team from Howth along with Howth lifeboat were tasked. The Irish Coast Guard Helicopter Rescue 117 from Waterford was also tasked but stood down on route. DFB also tasked a Fire unit and an Ambulance to the call.
A Coast Guard team located the casualty who had fallen 4 meters off the Cliff Path near Drumleck Point. The Coast Guard team worked with DFB paramedics to evacuate the casualty on a spinal board 200 meters to a waiting ambulance. The casualty was conscious and breathing and had suffered a head injury.

The Coast Guard reminds people of the dangers of going off the main path on Howth Head. By remaining on the path you get to enjoy the best views and keep yourself safe.
