Two men had been swimming in the area when they got caught out by strong currents but managed to reach nearby rocks. They attempted to climb the cliffs but quickly realised the scale of the climb, exhausted they held their position and shouted for help. A passing tourist was able to raise the alarm by getting to a nearby coffee shop who in turn called the Coast Guard.
The Irish Coast Guard Cliff Rescue team from Howth were tasked and were on the scene within minutes. 15 members of the team set up a cliff rescue and a rescue climber managed to reach the two casualities, get them secured and and with the rest of the team recover them up a steep incline to the top.
Slightly shaken by the ordeal the two were checked out by Coast Guard medics and didn't require any further attention.
