2nd April 2022, Errigal Mountain

The countdown is on to the 'Climb Errigal Together’ event which takes place on Saturday, April 2.

The climb will raise much needed funds for the Irish Motor Neurone Association and Pieta House as part of the campaign initiated by former RTÉ journalist, Charlie Bird who was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in October, 2021.

The local event, lead by Cllr. Ciaran Brogan, who is one of the main organizers and Mr. Eamon McGee, Donegal Motor Club who has been appointed as the lead coordinator for the event, was launched in Gaoth Dobhair's An Chúirt Hotel in February.

The event will be supported by An Garda Siochana, local bus operators, sports clubs and the Dunlewey Centre.

On the day, Civil Defence will provide radio communications, medical cover, and mountain rescue for the climbers, whilst some of the more enthusiastic volunteers will venture the climb in aid of the cause.

We would like to remind individuals and groups planning to take part to, wear the appropriate clothing and footwear and register through the official website -
