The ethos of mountain rescue, is mountaineers helping other mountaineers who find themselves in difficulty and in the early days of mountain rescue within Ireland, this was the case. Over the last number of years, the numbers of people taking to the mountain ranges for recreation purposes all over Ireland has increased significantly and so has the need for mountain rescue. Proper equipment and training will bring the level of risk down, but it will not completely remove the possibility of even the most experienced having an accident.
