Climb with Charlie / Climb with John (3rd April), Slieve Snaght Mouintains, Inishowen

7 April 2022

Day 2 of the ‘Climb with Charlie’ event was held on Sunday 3rd April in Inishowen, Donegal on the Slieve Snaght Mountains.

Slieve Snaght is a mountain in the middle of the Inishowen peninsula. It rises to a height of 615 metres, making it the highest mountain in Inishowen, and is one of the northernmost mountains of Ireland. The Climb with Charlie / Climb with John event was the brainchild of the Carndonagh Easter Parade Committee, a committee that John Cunningham, Civil Defence AFS member was very much a part of for many years. John received a motor neurone disease diagnosis, some years back and despite his diagnosis, John remains a very active member of his community and Donegal Civil Defence.

The event was organised to coincide with the Charlie Bird fundraising initiative, to raise money for the Irish Motor Neurone Disease. Civil Defence members from Inishowen supported this climb with medical and radio communications cover.
