Extreme is the story of people who go the edge, who want to know what their limits are and keep pushing them. Meet ultra swimmer Fergal Somerville, who has swam the north channel, ultra runner John O'Regan who runs 240km without thinking too much of it, base jumper Conor Heelan who literally jumps off tall buildings, Ricky Bell rock climber extradordinaire, big wave surfer Easkey Britton, thundercat pilot Aileen Mann and adventure racer Heather Irvine. They are the participants in our new TV documentary presented by Kipper Maguire, himself a champion kayaker, and heading to air in Spring 2015 on Setanta Sports Ireland. Made with the funding support of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and the TV licence fee.
