Welcome to the Kerry Mountain Rescue Website!

Kerry Mountain Rescue Team was formed in 1966 following the deaths of two climbers on the mountains of Southwest Ireland, and since then has come to the assistance of numerous climbers and walkers in distress.

This site will introduce you to the team and its activities. We hope you enjoy it!  
If so, please visit us again and tell your friends about us. Safe mountaineering!

Be Winter Ready!
