Greenland – A sailing and climbing adventure
December 3, 2015 @ 9:15 pm - 10:15 pm
On Thursday 3 December, Gerry Galligan will give a slide-show on a sailing and climbing trip to Artic Greenland that he and six others made this summer. This trip was part of a bigger adventure of sailing from Ireland to Greenland and back, island-hopping in the spirit of St. Brendan and other Irish monks who did similar voyages 1500 years ago.
Despite a barrier of ice all along the East Greenland coast, the crew of seven on board Paddy Barry’s boat Ar Seachran managed to access a fjord and make the first ascent of a fine peak in the Lemon mountains’ coastal range. The experiences they had in this wild, remote place and and the photographs they took are fascinating, so don’t miss out.
Gerry will have a few copies of this book Climbing Ramabang for sale (at special offer given the season!) on the night also.
Teachers Club, Parnell Square, Dublin 1. Thurs 3 Dec, 9pm.
