On Tuesday 28th June at 5pm the team from Howth Coast Guard were tasked along with CG Rescue 116 to search an area near Howth summit.
R116 lowered a winch man and located a person who was deceased. Due to the precarious location the helicopter requested the Howth CG Cliff Rescue team recover the body. Four climbers from the unit descended and the body was recovered. At 9pm the unit stood down.
We pass our sincere condolences onto the family of the deceased, Rest in Peace.
