« BackRescue operation underway on Killarney’s Ross Island

Emergency responders are currently coordinating a rescue operation on Killarney’s Ross Island where a man is believed to injured his leg.

Valentia Coastguard confirmed to Radio Kerry News that Shannon Rescue Helicopter 115 has been tasked to assist in the operation.


However due to terrain and forestation, it may be difficult to winch the man off the island and Killarney Water Rescue may also be tasked to assist by boat.

Kerry Mountain Rescue and Killarney Gardaí are currently assessing the situation and we will bring you further developments as they occur.
