It’s a sad day for SARDA Ireland with the passing of recently retired search dog Lyla.

Lyla was an excellent search dog, and along with her handler Louise Burgoyne, they made one of the best search dog teams SARDA Ireland has ever seen.

Lyla first qualified with SARDA Ireland in 2017 and only retired from searching last month at the age of 12. Lyla and Louise spent hundreds of hours searching for missing persons across Ireland, working at the top of their game. Lyla made numerous finds over her career, helping return missing people to their families, for which we are sure they are forever grateful.

From SARDA Ireland’s Training Officer, Gerry Tobin: “I wish to pay tribute to Lyla and Louise, such a legendary search dog team. We honour Lyla for contributing so much to SARDA searches over the years. Few people get to be as lucky as Louise and experience a dog of such ability.”

Our thoughts are with you, Louise, your lives were so interwoven. Take care, we are all here for you.

SEMRA responded to a callout to two lost walkers in the Blackstairs Mountains. The walkers reached the summit and started descending in what they felt was the wrong direction after thick cloud and rain limited visibility. Ground conditions were reported to be marshy underfoot. The walker's car was located by SEMRA members at Scollagh Gap. An Garda Síochána also tasked Search and Rescue Dog Association (Ireland) and Kilkenny Civil Defence to assist.The walkers were eventually located by SEMRA at 18:58 (circa 2 hrs after the initial callout) and were escorted back to the trailhead with SARDA member Mick Grant and search dog Ziggy. The walkers were returned safely to their car and all team members were off the hill by 20:03.
