Cormac Spain has sent us some images showing how he scaled the highest “free standing” mountain in the world. The intrepid 2000 player climbed for 5 days to eventually stand on top of Kilimanjaro – the highest point on the African continent.

But there is more to this story than a Cuala Thar Lar entry. Cormac’s training with the 2000 Boys stood to him on the toughest day which amounted to a 15 hour hike at altitude (over 19,000 ft) . The Cuala man even played some hurling at 13,000 feet with a Wexford man and a Kerry man! Unbelieveable I hear you say, yes, even the Tanzanian guides couldn’t believe that a Kerryman could play Hurling!

A few days later Cormac pucked around’ with a Masai warrior who showed very fine skills. (An Application Form is being arranged) Later on is this extraordinary trip, Cormac was lucky enough to visit a local school and got to present the school kids with dozens of jerseys donated by our own U13 lads.
