Carrickfin man Anraí O Domhnaill celebrated his 50th birthday today – by climbing Errigal for the 1,000th time.
Hundreds of people joined Anraí on a lunchtime charity climb to the top of Donegal’s highest mountain.
Members of the Donegal Mountain Rescue Team guided young and old through hail, wind, rain and storm.
It may have been muddy and wet, but the craic was good.
Proceedings were delayed, but Mayor John Campbell didn’t make it – so King of Tory Patsy Dan Rodgers got the climb under way, helped with music from the bagpipes.
The mountain rescue volunteers were the beneficiaries – Anraí collecting donations for them at Base Camp!
And after spending several hours up there today, it makes you realise the fantastic work the DMRT guys and girls do.
