Mountain Rescue Service warn of hill walking dangers

The Mountain Rescue Service in the county is asking people to prepare well this Christmas if they are planning to take a trip on the hills. Pro Gerry Christie says this time of year is a popular for people going on mountain excursions, however many fail to prepare properly. Callouts for Kerry Mountain Rescue have averaged at two per month this year, a similar number to 2002. Gerry Christie says Christmas walkers should remember conditions are totally different to that during the summer.
