It's a long way to go for a pint ...

Kilcullen's own Noel O'Connell finished off his September by rowing with five friends from Ireland to Scotland, to raise funds for the Crumlin Medical Research Fund, writes Brian Byrne.

The journey, in their boat called 'The Mistress', was undertaken on 26 September and took the crew a mere five hours and 40 minutes. After which they repaired to a pub for some well-deserved pints.

The picture above is a screen grab from a number of videos produced by team member Ivan Powell, and you can see the rest of this one here.

Well done Noel, and all.
