The Croagh Patrick Challenge was held in March of this year, when 29 people climbed the mountain seven days in a row and others completed a number of climbs. This event was organised as a fundraiser for Mayo Autism Action / Irish Autism Action. On Friday Night 29th August a presentation night was held in the Welcome Inn Hotel Castlebar and event organisers Johnny Oosten and Pat Kearns handed over a check for €116,158 to Kevin Whelan C.E.O. I.A.A. Of this over €82.000 went to Mayo Autism Action.
We would sincerely like to thank all who helped out in any way for this event.
