  • Climb with Charlie

  • Apr 2, 2022 from 11:30am to 3:30pm
  • Location: Cuilcagh, Co Fermanagh
  • Description:

    Charlie Bird, the well-known Irish journalist and broadcaster, announced in October 2021, that he has developed Motor neurone disease, after experiencing problems with his voice.  

    On 7th January, Charlie launched ‘Climb with Charlie’, a fundraising initiative in which he will be climbing Croagh Patrick on 2nd April in aid of the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association and Pieta House. 

    IIBN is supporting this "Climb with Charlie" initiative, but instead of climbing Croagh Patrick on Saturday, 2nd April, we are going to climb the magnificient Cuilcagh Legnabrocky Trail, in Co. Fermanagh - see image below.

    (It's not as difficult as Croagh Patrick and typically takes a total of 3 hours to ascend and decend!)

    For those who would like to make a weekend of it, we will be arranging Dinner on both the Friday and Saturday evenings, as well as hotel accommodation in the locality.  (Further details on this will be provided shortly.)

    The Cuilcagh Legnabrocky Trail is about a 2 hour drive from Dub
