EisnerAmper’s CSR Committee was delighted to sponsor Peter Buckley, Head of Finance & Operations to take part in the Art O’Neill Challenge on Friday 17 January 2020.
The Art O’Neill Challenge is a unique event organised by, and solely for the benefit of, the Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team. Its 53km route retraces a historic escape from Dublin Castle that happened in 1592. Art O’Neill, his brother Henry, and Red Hugh O’Donnell broke out of the Castle and made for Glenmalure to safety. On a freezing night the three made their way on foot and without the benefit of winter coats, having had to leave them in their cells. Henry and Hugh both made it to safety but sadly Art, for whom the Challenge is named, succumbed to hypothermia along the way.
Peter and his group set off from Dublin Castle at midnight and arrived at Glenmalure at 2pm on Saturday afternoon. It was a great achievement for Peter and his group.
