|Sunday, 05 February 2012|
Dr Clare O’Leary from Bandon, Co. Cork and Mike O’Shea from Kerry have both spent some months in training for a joint attempt to trek 784km from the north of Canada to the North Pole. This is Dr O’Leary’s third attempt to make the hazardous journey and if she succeeds she will become only the second women to have scaled the highest peaks on the seven ‘continents’ (Africa, N. America, S. America, Europe, Asia, Antarctica and Oceania) and reached the North and South Poles.
This is Mr O’Shea’s first attempt. He has been involved in mountaineering and adventure sports since the mid-1980s.
