Raffle winner takes on Ben Nevis

Castlebar attendee Allan McGee was the winner of our Grand Prize raffle at the festival last year. For Christmas, Santa came to him and not to me (I booked a lot of tickets for friends online hoping to increase my chances to win).

Our festival partners Concern Challenge were good enough to offer a 4 day trekking trip  to one of our attendees from the West Highland Way to Ben Nevis, the British Isles' highest peak.

Mayo man Allan McGee from Achill turned out to be the right man for the trip. Already an adventure sports enthusiast, he enjoys climbing, ice climbing, paddling, surfing and walking high summits. He was on this Scottish adventure from the 1st - 4th of August this year.
