Doolin Coast Guard unit was tasked by MRSC, Valentia at 17.30 following a call from a walker who had become separated from his companion near Blackhead. The walkers had descended back onto the Green Road track but had come down on the steeper side and had suddenly lost contact with each other in the heavy mist. Coast Guard members took vehicles to several locations and used blue lights and phone to communicate with and locate one of the walkers. Shortly after , the other walker was located and both returned to their vehicle with Coast Guard members.
