Peak of the Reek

16 June, 2023 - 31 December, 2023

On Friday June 16th last a group of people generously gave up their time to meet at Croagh Patrick, do the climb while fundraising to raise vital funds and raise awareness of families living with dementia.

The comraderie, the spirit of giving and humbleness was truly beautiful to be a part of.

A huge thank you to our sponsors, Portwest, Homecare Medical, O’Haras of Foxford and Bulmers Ireland.

To all involved, whether by participating in the climb, fundraising, those who gave so generously and the team who looked after everyone on the day, THANKYOU!
