Description

In autumn 2021, veteran Irish journalist and broadcaster Charlie Bird
publicly announced that he has Motor Neurone Disease. Despite this
devastating diagnosis, he knew that he wanted to do something to
help others, and so he decided to organise a charity climb of Ireland?s
famous Holy Mountain, Croagh Patrick. Little did he know then that he
would create a national event and raise almost ?2.5 million for
charities close to his heart, Pieta House and the Irish Motor Neurone
Disease Association.
On the afternoon of 2 April 2022, Charlie completed the momentous
challenge, cheered on by his family, friends and a host of famous
faces, including Ryan Tubridy, Daniel O?Donnell, Dermot Bannon, and
Barry McGuigan. And the action was not confined to Croagh Patrick;
supporters the length and breadth of the country came out in their
thousands to climb their local peaks in a breath-taking show of
solidarity. For Charlie, the experience was nothing short of spiritual.
This book is a joyous record of that unforgettable, emotional day, and
a deserved celebration of determination, generosity and community.
