The Top Oil Charity Spring Climb held on Saturday has been hailed a great success.
Speaking to the Donegal Democrat, Lorraine Thompson of the Donegal Youth Service said that while the weather conditions weren't the best, it didn't dampen the spirits of the large number who scaled Donegal's famous mountain.
“There was a great atmosphere on the day and everyone found it a very positive experience,” she said.
“We were joined on the climb by Jason Black, who climbed Mount Everest three years ago and local adventure racer, Sean McFadden, who won The Race in 2015,” Lorraine added.
Around 700 euro was raised through the climb.
“The money will certainly be put to good use. Donegal Youth Service is open for all young people. We offer one-to-one support at our base on Port Road (Letterkenny). We are delighted to have been selected as the benefiting charity for the first Top Oil climb,” she added.
Lorraine also extended her thanks to Roarty's Top Oil Service Station in Dunlewey for providing refreshments for the climbers.
