100 Hr Challenge

This day back in 2006 I was halfway through a challenge with a team from Ulster Bank which involved climbing the highest peak in every county in Ireland in less than 100hrs and in doing so set a new Irish record for this challenge.  The original record had been set by two Australians back in 1999 and stood at168hrs.  Our attempt started on the morning of mid summer’s day June 21st2006 in the Hag’s Glen below Carrantuohill in Co. Kerry and finished after the descent of Mount Errigal in Co. Donegal 96hrs 55mins later.
