Charity hikers to take on five peaks
Bookmark and Share
A group of seven construction workers will don both men's outdoor clothing and women's outdoor clothing as they seek to go one better than the National Three Peaks challenge.

The six men and one woman from Yorkshire-based Bramall Construction aim to take on not just the highest peaks in Great Britain, but also the equivalent summits in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, the Sheffield Star reports.

Aiming to raise £10,000 for the Forget Me Not Trust - a charity that helps children in Yorkshire with life-limiting conditions - the group will be aiming to compete the challenge in 48 hours.

The highest peak in the Republic of Ireland is Carrauntoohil at 3,410 ft, while Northern Ireland's top peak is Slieve Donard at 2,789 ft, with these heights making them the third and fifth highest mountains in the challenge respectively.

People keen to don their hiking boots and climb Irish mountains can enjoy several other peaks over 3,000 ft, such as Lugnaquillia, Galtymore, Brandon Mountain and Caher.
