Delighted to hear we've another attempt happening. I'd not been much bothered with the weather this week, on nights, so it was of no great consequence my end. But seeing what you are gonna be at changed me thinking :)
Every best wish closing 'er out in jig time.

Least you know not to veer too far right off Kippure at this stage ;-)
|Thomas Roche||Jul 3 2020, 7:03pm||Thanks everyone. I hope I get better weather than u did Graham. I heard it was biblical by all accounts. I think I'll be taken the service road this time Alan, bad enough trying to find my way in daylight ;-)|
|Jason Dowling||Jul 3 2020, 8:35pm||Wishing you the very best on your attempt Tom. Hope the weather, the ground and the wind all play their part in helping you get around. Good luck and here's hoping you make it back to Featherbeds before last orders :)|

|Graham K. Bushe||Jul 5 2020, 2:09am||Great determination Tom in Very Tough conditions. Well done to keep going.|
|Thomas Roche||Jul 5 2020, 11:25am||Well, that will put manners on ye. I have a new found respect for people that have attempted the round. After a few navigational errors during the night I was chasing time all day but thanks to my crew, John and Ivana Working tirelessly throughout the day. I was set up for what was looking like a nail biting finish to make it within the 24hrs until I came to Tonduff at night where I made another nav error (We can compare notes Graham ;-)) And eventually put an end to my attempt. I finished it out at a snails pace just to finish what I started. Thanks everyone for the well wishes and thanks to my crew John, Ivana and Frank who played a blinder all day.|
|Gordon Place||Jul 5 2020, 12:06pm||Well done Tom, some man to keep going and finish it out anyway. I'm sure you'll be back, and at least the weather couldn't be much worse again. Enjoy the rest|
|Brendan Lawlor||Jul 5 2020, 12:09pm||Hard luck Thomas.. beidh la eile|
Well done for finishing it out.. that will stand to you next time
|Stephen Brennan||Jul 5 2020, 12:55pm||Fair dues Tom. Conditions were very challenging. You'll smash it next time.|
|Lillian Deegan||Jul 5 2020, 2:03pm||Massive respect Tom. What doesn't kill yeah... Swift recovery wishes.|
|Robert Carney||Jul 5 2020, 4:10pm||Wind was battering at the windows last night and made me think of Tom battling on.|
Fair paly to ya.
|Greg CLARKE||Jul 7 2020, 1:58pm||Maximum respect Thomas. You did something huge out there in those conditions. The hills are still there for next time. Well done|
