Help the Flight for Sight
On 26th April our team joined up with a team of 25 trekkers and walked 4 peaks over 15 miles, in just under 9 hours in the beautiful Mourne mountains. The equivalent of walking up and down 350 flights of stairs, in 35,000 steps taking in the way both Slieve Lamagan (704 Mtrs) and Slieve Binian (747 Mtrs), on paths and tracks more suitable for mountain goats. It was a fantastic day, and of course all in typical Irish weather of wind, sunshine, hale, slight mizzle, low cloud – 4 seasons in one day.
