Date: Thursday 2nd June.
Location: Howth Cliffs
Today at lunch time a member of the public reported to the Irish Coast Guard emergency operations centre that youths were getting themselves into danger on the cliffs in Howth.
An initial response team from the Irish Coast Guard station in Howth were tasked and arrived quickly at the area. They located a group of teenagers that were walking along steep slopes away from the main coastal path. The Coast Guard members were able to signal to the teens to return to the Cliff Path where the Coast Guard informed them of the dangers they were getting themselves into.
We encourage people to enjoy the good weather but to do so safely. This area has seen people fall from the cliffs and suffer serious injury in the past. We are particularly grateful to the member of the public who dialed the Coast Guard on 999 to inform us of their concerns; this ensured a swift response from the Coast Guard with the incident quickly resolved.
