A RESCUE OPERATION IS underway in Bray, County Wicklow this evening after a climber fell 25 feet off of Bray Head.

The man, in his early 20s, fell from the Greystones side of the cliff at about 4pm, between the two Dart tunnels.

It is believed the man had been out climbing with a large group, possibly absailing, when he fell.

The Coastguard Helicopter 116, Greystones Coastguard Unit and emergency services were launched to the scene.

The coastguard said that it was a particularly difficult lift. The man is believed to have suffered a head and back injury and was airlifted to Beaumont Hospital.

Irish Rail suspended services between Greystones and Bray due to the accident, however services have now been restored.
