Jim and Patrick McCarron (Annagelia/Mullinahinch) took advantage of December good weather and a break in the Covid 19 lockdown on Christmas Eve to climb Slieve Foy in Carlingford and to complete their charity county tops challenge. Slieve Foy is on the Cooley Peninsula and rises to 589 metres, making it the highest in Louth. Already they have raised €12,200 and are thankful to the generosity of peoples donations. They are splitting the money equally with Crocus Monaghan and Cavan/Monaghan palliative care service. If you still wish to donate, please do so asap as they want to get finished up with the money presentation; you can also donate on the Go Fund Me page https://www.gofundme.com/f/32-county-high-point-challenge?member&utm_medium=email&utm_source=customer&utm_campaign=p_email%2Binvitesupporters&fbclid=IwAR2o0a-IMd64t7BX5jyOAzzz9seX8IqWxCSN2sCBEiykHpc8corYJvAgaag
Congratulations to them on an outstanding achievement – anyone that is doing the County high points challenge will know that hiking the highest hill itself isn’t always the hard part of the challenge, its the driving to all these remote places in Ireland that can be the most tiring part. However, it’s been a great adventure, and we know their money will be put to great use for local people availing of cancer supports.
