Stevie the Calico moggie and his human Patrick Corr climbed Ireland’s highest mountain to raise €1,300 for animal welfare groups.
On 26th April 2016 Stevie climbed Carrauntoohil – the highest peak on the island of Ireland at 3406ft, located in County Kerry.
Our party consisted of myself, Stevie and my twin brother Eoghan. We took four cameras (including a Canon C100, Canon 700D, Polaroid Cube, Nikon Coolpix) with 6 bags of gear and were forced to camp for the night when visibility was low due to sudden fog. The climb took approximately 4 hours there and back, not counting the 107 miles it took to drive to Kerry!
Our sponsored hike was many months in the making but it would not have been possible without all the help and support of our friends, family and fans around the world. We love you all!
Special thank you to my friend Tony for donating his tent for the trip – we badly needed it!
Your donations continue to help save the lives of animals in need, just like Stevie. All donations are sent to the Tipperary Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Animal Care Society of Cork.
