113 km Thank You Quest to Mount Leinster 10.10.20

On 3rd of January 2020 my Dad Patrick Carroll suffered life threatening injurie's in an Accident as a pedestrian with an Articulated Lorry on main Streetin Abbeyleix.  We as a family along with our friends would like to thank Abbeyleix Fire Brigade, Portlaoise Hospital paramedics, theIrish Air Corp and St. Jame's Hospital for giving him the opportunity to live.  Daddy is 77 years of age and to comprehend him surviving such and accident is a miracle in itself. He suffered a shattered hip, right leg amputation,  left foot amputation, and broken ribs. However, despite all of this he is in good humour and taking the life-changing events in his stride. He is an inspiration to all in our little community of Shanahoe and the surrounding area. Anyone who knows him speaks of his resilience and his great attitude in the face of adversity. This would not have been possible without the first responders as named above. So myself Tim Carroll , my Sister in law Fiona Kelly and my good Friend Barry Donnelly on one of our regular cycles decided to take on a quest, hopefully raise some funds to say Thank You. Please donate whatever you can as nobody knows when that call will come and your loved ones life rests in the first responders hands. Trust me they are inspirational people !! Quest Details 90km cycle to Mount Leinster, 5km Run up Mount Leinster, 14 km Cycle to clashganny, 1km kayak, 5k Cycle to finish in Ballymurphy
