A Fermanagh man is aiming to climb the height of Mount Everest without leaving the province, it has been revealed.
Paul O’Loughlan has been putting himself through extremes, up and down a hill just outside Ballyshannon from 6am yesterday morning (Fri).
O’Loughlan, who is in his 50s, aims to complete the massive undertaking tonight at 6pm – with no sleep.
The South West College (SWC) lecturer is taking on the Everesting challenge – one of the most difficult challenges in the world – with Paul aiming to be the first person to achieve it solo across the country.
Paul will be collecting money for the Omagh college charity ‘The Education Foundation for South Sudan’ to build a school in South Sudan.
A foundation SWC started last year in line with the opening of the new Erne Campus.
