Galway man organises charity climb of Croagh Patrick

Its members meet at local, national, regional, and international levels to discuss and pursue topics of common interest. The organisation has 25,000 members in some 525 clubs in 80 countries.

Skal hopes to have a team from every county in Ireland climbing the Reek together to raise funds for suicide bereavement support group Console, Alan Kerins' African Projects, and Skal Ireland charities. The climb is organised by Mr O'Dwyer and Skal and is open to everyone. "This is a novel and very worthwhile cause and I and my colleagues in Skal Galway are lending our full support to Tom who is an excellent ambassador for Skal," said Mary Bennett, Skal International member and the organisation's first woman president. The climb will take place on May 16, and will conclude with climbers and friends gathering in Westport for music and refreshments.
