On March 17th 2011 the 5th annual Seven Day In A Row Croagh Patrick Challenge was completed.

This year once again we had climbers from every county in Ireland , from U.K. , Europe & U.S.A. The event drew over 2000 climbers all had a superb week. Weather conditions at the start of the event were very difficult  as we had Snow , Rain , Wind, Sleet...but the last days made up for it with glorious sunshine. Ian Mc Keever created a new Irish record by blimbing 35 times in seven days 5 daily and raised €5000 from Paddy Power for doing so. We would once again like to thank all who made this event possible , climbers , sponsors , Media etc  and to the general public for all your support...Together We Are Making A Difference......

Thank You
