Matt Loughrey: Sharing a moment in history
Something unique is about to happen in the world of hillwalking that will catapult our sport into the limelight for all to see. This Saturday 4th June Matt Loughrey will complete his year long fundraising odyssey by climbing Croagh Patrick for the 365th day in a row. His unique achievement, his drive and his determination are a credit to him and reflect the best qualities of our love of walking and hiking. Matt is not only raising funds for St V de P, he is also putting Hillwalking firmly on the map through the extensive media coverage he is generating.

MountainViews are proud to honour Matt for his achievement and to recognise the substantial contribution he is making to highlighting Hillwalking in Ireland. As Simon has said, there will be a delegation from MountainViews at the summit of Croagh Patrick this Saturday to help greet Matt and applaud his final ascent. We will present him with a Certificate of Achievement on behalf of the MountainViews Hillwalking community. We would invite all MountainViews members and friends to share this moment in time and make the voice of Hillwalking be heard loud and clear on the day. There is a choice to be at Murrisk car park before 12 noon to climb with Matt (strict set off time of 12 noon), or to arrange to be at the summit at 1pm to welcome him as he reaches the summit for the 365th day in a row. There is a party afterwards for all and sundry! Come and join the occasion and let's promote Hillwalking to the whole country!
