    “Because it is there.”George Mallory (1886-1924), his answer to the question ‘Why do you want to climb Mt. Everest ?’.
    “We encourage young people to go out and exceed their goals. Everest is an icon of that”Neil Beidleman Everest climber
    “I was in continual agony; I have never in my life been so tired as on the summit of Everest that day. I just sat and sat there, oblivious to everything”
    Reinhold Messner, 1980

    This is an epic achievement and a very proud day for Donegal and all of your skiing buddies.

  53. Diarmaid O'Maolchallann

    Congratulations, Jason Black, the first person from Donegal to summit Mount Everest at 8848m, amazing accomplishment! Only being familiar with Irish mountains such as Slieve Donard in the Mournes at 850m I cannot begin to even Imagine what Mount Everest looks like at over 10 x Slieve Donards height! Well Done. Diarmaid.

  54. Jimmy Cunningham

    Congratulations Jason from all in Scouting Ireland. You will be an inspiration for every Scout that starts out and dreams of making it to the top of Everest some day. Hopefully what you learned as a young Scout helped you along the Journey.
