Winter Presentation – Paddy O’Leary – ‘IMC at High Altitudes’

February 15 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The IMC has the pleasure of welcoming Paddy O’Leary to give a presentation in the Teachers Club on the 15th February, Room 4 at 8.30pm.

Paddy is a member of the IMC since the 1950’s and has climbed mountains all over the world including leading the first Irish expeditions to the Himalayas and Peru.

His new book, The Way That We Climbed – A History of Irish Hillwalking, Climbing and Mountaineering – reveals the impact the Irish have had on scaling some of the highest peaks in the world.

Whilst being an advocate of mountaineering on middle-range peaks (c. 6,000 metres) in more remote areas he is keen to encourage club members to explore these less travelled, high altitude mountain destinations that are off the beaten track.

This is truly one not to be missed and we hope that lots of you can make it along.

Admission is free and everyone is welcome.
