For the first time, the service will have its own designated 4X4.  As a voluntary organisation Sligo Leitrim Mountain Rescue Team was not in a position to purchase their own vehicle. The National Parks and Wildlife Service based in Glenveagh in Co. Donegal, has stepped in and donated one from their fleet.

Sligo and Leitrim Mountain Rescue spokesperson Alan Sayers says the new addition will make a major difference when it comes to rescue operations, especially in adverse weather conditions.

The 2000 Nissan Pathfinder pickup is currently being kitted out and will be ready for service in the coming weeks.
