Ireland's first (and only) female winchman works as with Rescue 117 based in Waterford Airport. Here's what Sarah had to say about joining CHC Helicopter Ireland & Rescue 117. "A few years ago, when I heard they were doing recruitments, I went for it. The process is very thorough and they leave no stone unturned in assessing if youโ€™re able for the work. CHC are quite proactive making opportunities available to women and encouraging women to apply for this kind of work."

Thank you to Sarah and all of the women across SAR for their dedication to saving lives.

You can show Sarah your support during #helisarweek by liking, commenting or sharing this post to help us raise money for Search and Rescue charities including RNLI and @Mountain Rescue Ireland.

Hard to believe that itโ€™s four years since we lost our dear friend and beloved teammate Kevin.

He is remembered by all of us at DWMRT today and everyday. His positivity and joy left a lasting impression on anyone lucky enough to have known him.

A big 'Thank You' to Search and Rescue Dogs Association (SARDA) members Mick and Eadaoin with Ziggy the dog, for the demonstration and talk they gave my B.Sc. Environmental Science & Climate students while we were on University Fieldwork in the Galty Mountain area.
SARDA helps in the search and rescue of missing persons on the hills or wherever they may be.

No one receives any payment for their work with SARDA, all are volunteers who give of their time freely.

Itโ€™s been another year, and we continue to miss Caitrรญona on our hills. As we finished off our September National Training Weekend this afternoon, we had Caitrรญona and her family in our thoughts. ๐ŸพWe at SARDA Ireland are remembering our friend and colleague Caitriฬona Lucas today.

Four years ago, Caitriฬona responded to a callout with her fellow Coast Guard volunteers to assist in a search off the Co. Clare coast. During this operation, Caitriฬona tragically lost her life.

Caitriฬona was also a member of SARDA Ireland, where alongside her dog Zac, she dedicated so much time to not just one rescue organisation, but two. Together, they were a qualified dog team for 7 years and responded to many SARDA callouts.

SARDA Ireland members will be lighting a candle and sending our best wishes to Damian, his family, and all at SARDA Wales, we hope that Damianโ€™s condition improves.Last week one of our Handlers; Damian, was seriously injured whilst out cycling. Whilst the circumstances of what happened are unclear, he remains in a critical condition in hospital.

Our thoughts and best wishes go out to him, his wife and their family. There is little any of us can do at this time, but we are all desperate for news of his condition improving.

Tonight, (Sunday 15th) at 6pm we are collectively lighting a candle and having a small dram of single malt whisky (Damianโ€™s favourite tipple) to send our combined thoughts, prayers, best wishes for a good recovery for Damian.

Over the last few days, SARDA Ireland held a national trailing training weekend had the absolute pleasure of having Tim Sherlock from Search and Rescue Dogs Association (SARDA Wales) visiting to assess how our trainee trailing dogs were progressing. 

SARDA Wales are a centre of excellence when it comes to trailing and this was evident from the excellent feedback that was given to each of our trainee handlers.

We started early on the Saturday morning, where Tim observed each dog team set up and carry out a run at their current training stage. After each run, the handler was given feedback by Tim. As the day progressed, each dog team had multiple runs, where they put the advice they were given into practice, with great progress being made all around. One of our trainee trailing dog teams, Jarlath and Shadow had their first 3 person line up, which is one of the final scent discrimination stages that a dog has to pass. Shadow took to the new stage like a duck to water and aced every run. After a busy day, the team headed off for a well earned dinner. 

Sunday morning held a different start to the day. While travelling to the training area, a number of team members came across a medical emergency which required our assistance. With a wide range of medical skills, from first aid right up to paramedic, our members were able to provide a high level of care until the National Ambulance Service (NAS) arrived on scene. 

Once we arrived to the training area, the team sat down, held a debrief over a cup of tea, and had a chat about the events of the morning. After a rest, we got back to training, and continued in a similar format to the previous day. 

As Jarlath and Shadow continued to ace every 3 person line up, they progressed into blind runs, to test the dogs ability. After 3 successful consecutive runs, Jarlath and Shadow were signed off on the final scent discrimination stages, and moved on to the trailing stages. This test is a big deal for trainee trailing dog teams, and Jarlath and Shadow are the first Irish trainee dog team to progress to this stage. Not only is it a huge achievement for them, but also for the entire SARDA Ireland team! (See photo below of the very first trail for SARDA Ireland)

We would like to sincerely thank Tim and SARDA Wales, supported by National Search and Rescue Dog Association (NSARDA), for the excellent training opportunity, the weekend was filled with non-stop learning and progress. We would also like to thank the landowner who graciously provided several large fields for the training weekend, we really appreciate their support.

๐ŸคฉPUPPY UPDATE NO. 1 - Hunter๐Ÿคฉ

A number of SARDA Ireland handlers have new puppies and we thought that you all would like to hear a little about them! We will share some info over the coming days/weeks.

Hunter is a sproker (springer cocker spaniel mix) that has big hopes to be a trailing search dog one day! Sprokers are high-energy dogs and Hunter has been directing his energy into learning scent discrimination, an important skill for any trailing dog!

Hunter's owners are members of Bonmahon Coast Guard, and have been busy training him whilst also responding to coast guard callouts.

His owners say he is quite helpful, he has helped with painting the house, and even does his fair share of homeschooling the kids, (although his lessons seem to focus on understanding scent movement in wind๐Ÿ˜…).

He is very obedient, and exercises within his 5km! Good Boy Hunter!๐Ÿ™Œ

We can't wait to see what is in store for Hunter in the future! ๐Ÿ‘

What a cute puppy! An A for effort for this good boy for helping paint the house ๐Ÿ˜…

We're all so looking forward seeing Hunter grow up to being a SARDA Dog ๐Ÿ• some day. We'll do everything that we can to make that happen for Hunter. Even teaching him to climb ๐Ÿ˜„

What a beautiful Sprocker ๐Ÿ˜

** Callout 3 **

SARDA Ireland were tasked by An Garda Sรญochรกna at approx. 5pm yesterday evening to a missing persons incident in Co. Kerry. 3 dog teams responded Eadaoin and Murphy, Mick and Ziggy, and Louise and Lyla. Our first dog team arrived on scene shortly after 8pm. Dog teams searched forestry, farmland, bog and roadside areas in poor visibility and deteriorating weather conditions until around midnight. Dog teams were supported by SARDA members Adrian, Edwin and Jean.

Two dog teams returned this morning (Mick and Ziggy and Gerry and Fia) to continue the search. Sadly, the missing person was located deceased by a member of AGS. Our sincere condolences to the missing persons family, friends and neighbours.

Annual statistics below for Mountain Rescue Ireland teams, which includes SARDA Ireland. 

Well done to all our fellow MRI teams for their hard work and dedication throughout a complicated year. 

We ask all our followers to adhere to public health guidance, and not to head outside of their comfort zone if they are lucky enough to have mountains or upland areas within their 5km. Be prepared, plan ahead and have a means of contacting help should you need it.

We ask all our followers to adhere to public health guidance, and not to head outside of their comfort zone if they are lucky enough to have mountains or upland areas within their 5km. Be prepared, plan ahead and have a means of contacting help should you need it.MRI 2020 annual statistics - 345 callouts in 2020 across all mountain rescue teams. This is an increase of 15 from 2019.
As lockdowns requirements changed, callouts increased, this can be seen when each quarter is compared to the previous year:
2019: 2020:
Q1; 75 Q1; 61
Q2; 95 Q2; 57
Q3; 103 Q3; 137
Q4; 57 Q4; 90
