Our climb

We climbed Croagh Patrick in August 2019. While my husband and I have done a lot of hill walking, the kids (age 4, 5 and 7) have done hardly any. So we were very proud of them for getting to the top. Even though my husband had to carry our 4 year old up the final steep ascent: she had done brilliantly until that point, but she was completely asleep by then! She woke up as he staggered over the crest of the mountain and tool all the credit though, obviously. I would definitely recommend other families to do it.

Top tips:

  • Take A LOT of snacks and treats and be prepared to take all day.
  • Go with friends – it really helped the children to be climbing with friends, they chatted continuously with each other all the way.
  • Be prepared to take all day. The average climb is 3 and a half hours. It took us more than 7!
  • When you’ve finished, buy everyone one of my unique Mountain Merch t-shirt to prove that you climbed Ireland’s Holy Mountain – Croagh Patrick!

Birthday Wishes

Tim was thinking about going for high-speed spin along the deserted sea wall to celebrate his 80th birthday.

He would lean heavily to one side to counterbalance the dangerous camber of the path. He’d deploy his infamous invincibility shield to defend him from loitering covid dropules left by illegal joggers out sneezing earlier this morning. Obviously, he’d use his mobility scooter’s 4WD function to scramble over the mountains of stones the recent storms had strewn across the path.  Finally, he’d need to dodge the bored policeman lurking in the car park, waiting to ticket adventurous pensioners breaking lockdown on non-essential jaunts along the seaside.

Just thinking about it was probably enough for today.

Maybe he’d do it tomorrow.

Happy Birthday Dad! We love you xxxxxxxx
