Climb to Remember Update

Remember Loved Ones & Support The Mercy Hospital

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Climb to Remember this year. Climb to Remember took place in two locations: The Galtees (10th June) and Carrauntoohil (24th June). People laced up their boots and took on the challenge of some of Ireland’s highest peeks, in memory of a loved one.


We have some great photos from the two Climbs which you can see on our Facebook page. Click here to view.

TimHigginsClimbTim Higgins did the Climb to Remember in The Galtees

I did the climb in honour of my father in law John Hegarty, who passed away in March 2013 from cancer. John was the greatest man I have ever had the privilege of knowing, he lived for his family and especially his grandchildren (aged 3 to 23yrs). He was well up to speed on a variety of subjects from Peppa Pig and Iron Man to his favourite team, Tottenham Hotspurs, Cork City and Corks hurling and football teams. His absence is still raw, and is sure to be for a long time to come. I’d like to thank the Mercy Hospital Foundation for the opportunity to remember John in this way; I’m sure he and all those who left all of the climbers had something to do with the glorious day we had for the climb.
