Three students had to be rescued from the Wicklow Mountains last week after they suffered injuries to their legs in separate accidents.
The students were part of a large school group and were accompanied by teachers.
The Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team and the Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue team received a request from the Gardaí (police) at about 12:30 p.m. to assist the students.
The group, all of whom were in their early teens, was hiking around the Glendalough valley. The three students hurt their legs in separate accidents on the rough terrain approaching the Glenealo Bridge at the back of the Glendalough valley.
