Maccers Mountain Madness!
Uploaded Sunday, 13th Aug, 2017 at 12:19

FORMER player and current Chief Scout Paul McAreavey took the opportunity of a rare Saturday off in the first weekend of the season to do something special with family and friends, and raise money in memory of a loved one.
Paul's wife's aunt Julia passed away earlier this year with cancer and the family decided they would like to take on a challenge to raise much needed funds for the NI Hospice. The charity supported Julia through her ordeal, and to date "Maccers" and the family have raised over £6,000 for the Hospice.

Paul and others took on the Mourne Mountain Seven Peak Challenge on Saturday which basically consists of a 10-12 hour hike, taking in the highest points of the Mourne's.
