With the sudden death of Ian Mc Keever Mayo has lost a real friend Ian tragically lost his life, while climbing Kilimanjaro.
I met him briefly while he was participating in the Croagh Patrick Challenge in aid of Autism Ireland. Ian took part in the Challenge, not just for one day but for all 7 days, and 5 times each day.
I was impressed with his selflessness. The upper slopes of the Reek were covered in snow & Ian went to the bother of erecting markers in the snow to enable others follow the route to the summit in safety. He still had time to greet and encourage others who were struggling in the ascent.
May he Rest in Peace.
