A sea cliff rescue climber from the Irish Coast Guard was lowered in from the top of the cliffs, and using a rescue strop, secured the casualty into a safe position clear of rockfall. The response team used a rope rescue haul system to recover both climber and casualty to the cliff top. The casualty required no further medical assistance and was assisted by Gardai back to their transportation.
The Irish Coast Guard would like to thank the members of the public who alerted the emergency services using "CASPER"; Call 112, Ask for the correct service, Speak clearly and slowly, give a good Position, Explain the emergency, and Remain where you are.
If you spot somebody in difficulty on the coast, cliffs, or at sea, call 112 and ask for Coast Guard.
