The Croagh Patrick Climb with Charlie Bird
Congratulations to Charlie and hundreds of supporters, including many personalities, who reached the summit of the mountain yesterday at 12.30 pm approx. The event was supported worldwide by groups who organised hill and mountain climbs and long distance walks elsewhere. An amazing achievement for the man himself and also for the fundraiser he set up, with long-suffering Vicky Phelan very much in mind, which is likely to reach over €2,000,000 for the Motor Neurone Association and Pieta.
