Mountain Rescue Ireland looking for RockStars

Mountain Rescue Ireland, the organisation which oversees the twelve Mountain Rescue teams in Ireland, is hosting a fundraising abseil on Saturday 28th July, 2012 at Dwyer’s Rock in Glenmalure, County Wicklow, where the panoramic views are simply stunning.
