Croagh Patrick, Co Mayo.
A group of us from Galway climbed Croagh Patrick this past Saturday This week is Reek Week, a special The Gathering event, which culminates with the traditional Reek Sunday climb. Maybe the film will motivate some Broadsheeters to climb this week…
This just pilgrim
The photo was taken last Saturday on the summit of Croagh Patrick. This enterprising gent hauls Coke (€3), Mars Bars and Tayto up “The Reek” by donkey power during the summer. He was busy listening to the radio when I took this.
Fair play though in fairness.
Canadian sculptor Timothy Schmalz has put his plans to build a 100-foot bronze statue of St Patrick on Croagh Patrick on hold.
He made the decision after the Mayo News showed him the results of a poll which showed just 26% of respondents supported the idea.
