Ireland to Everest Team in Northern Ireland


If you haven't already heard, in 2011 the 'Ireland to Everest' team of Cian O’Brolchain, Ian Taylor and Robbie Kelly have been raising money for Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Association of Ireland by setting themselves the challenge of climbing to the highest point in each of the 32 Counties in Ireland.

After bagging 10 of the highest county peaks  so far the team will be summiting Trostan (551m) in Antrim on Sunday 27th March 2011.

This will be their first climb in Northern Ireland and are inviting everybody along to join them on this section of their unique challenge.

The team will then be summiting Slieve Gullion on Sunday 3rd April. At 573m Slieve Gullion is the 12th highest peak in Ireland.

Once the guys have completed the 32 steps in Ireland, their journey will continue by climbing five other mountains on five continents with their final destination being the summit of Mount Everest.
