Walkers regularly had to be rescued after straying on to a County Wicklow army firing range last year.

This, and getting lost, made up one in 10 of the incidents dealt with by the Mountain Rescue Team (M.R.T.) last year.

Five out of 51 incidents dealt with by the Glen of Imaal Mountain Rescue Team involved walkers wrongly descending the Co. Wicklow walk routes towards the army exercise area in the Glen of Imaal.
