30 May-Climbed Carrantuohill via Brother O'Sheas Gully. Featured on Radio Kerry and Irish Daily Mirror. Weather was very good so decided to take more interesting route. A tribute to Martin my donor was placed below the cross at the top.

23 July-Climbed Snowdon weather at the top very cold and misty. Drove to Fort William on Friday 24 July and did interview with Rachel English in a stop on the M6. This was broadcast on the Saturday AM radio show and generated a lot of donor awareness. Meanwhile we got excellent weather on Saturday for Ben Nevis, clear and warm on top. It was quite humbling to hear that a blind man got to the top the same day.
Drove to Wasdale on Sunday and overnighted in the Wasdale Inn(a gem of a place). Weather on Monday AM looked dodgy and we got a good soaking on the way up Scafell Pike, weather cleared on the summit and we got back to Wasdale dry(great no wet gear to pack).

My donor Martin will be remembered at the summit of Ireland, Wales, Scotland and England.

Thanks to my best friend, support, lover and wife Margaret Barron, truth be know the last few years have placed a heavy burden on her. Margaret has ridden the roller coaster to hell and back with me over the last few years a true friendship.

Thanks to all my friends on the support team who accompanied me on the event. Margaret Barron, Mick Kelly, Chris O'Connor, Ann Hegarty, Kian Clegg and Marie Arnold.

Thanks to all who have donated on and off line.

A special thanks for the generous support from staff in CSO, Rathfarnham Educate Together National School, Divine Grace National School, Dublin Airport Authority, ESB, Enovation Solutions and the Wayfarers Association.
