Joss Lynam at 80. (Expand pics)
Sponsor this Climber.
The following has come in from Joss Lynam.

Hi folks

To raise money for Cancer Research (and to celebrate his 82nd birthday)
Joss Lynam will abseil down Winder's Slab in Dalkey Quarry on 29th June
at about 8 pm. (weather permitting).

Donations of all sizes will be very welcome.

For the multitudes who don't want to waste an evening watching Joss
doing an easy abseil, you can always send a cheque made out to
"Clinical Cancer Research Trust" to Joss Lynam,
7 Sorbonne,
Ardilea
Estate,
Dublin 14

Weather permitting!

Joss

Joss is an old friend who has done a lot for mountaineering in this country and who is fighting a battle against cancer himself. The mountain list that MountainViews uses has in part come from a list he developed many years ago. While rather often he and I agree to differ particularly on aspects of hillwalking I have no hesitation in recommending that people contribute to this cause.

Photo was from 2004 when Joss was celebrating his 80th birthday in Dalkey Quarry.
