A man from county Clare has begin a voyage to Greenland, which he hopes will raise money for Irish Dogs for the Disabled.
Dermot Cosgrove has begun his gruelling journey to Western Greenland and plans to travel the Arctic Circle Trail.
Mr. Cosgrove, a former member of the French Foreign Legion, will make his way from the town called Sisimiut all the way to the Russell Glacier before returning back to a town called Kangerlussauq.
He expects the journey to take approximately ten days in total to complete, and the journey consists of a 250km journey altogether.
He has always been an outdoorsman and somewhat of an adventurer and he decided to complete the journey for the charity.
His sister is already involved with the charity, which is why he wanted to get involved. He says they (The charity) provide disabled people with a lifeline, and give them a uality of life which we take for granted.
Dermot’s journey began to Copenhagen during the week, and the real journey/challenge began once he got there and began making his way to the Arctic.
An incredible mission for a great cause, best of luck to Dermot! Safe Travels!!
