Team invited to take part in competition.
The Lisheen mines rescue team were invited to participate in the Iberian Mines Rescue Competition which was held in Aljustral Portugal on the 31st May.
After a few problems trying to get the equipment flown over to Portugal we left Ireland without our rescue kit, so on arrival in Portugal we had to arrange to borrow breathing apparatus from one of the Portuguese mines. With different kit supplied the challenge was set for the Lisheen team.
