Mick O'Meara crosses the line

Circumnavigations: Ireland

Back in 1990 Dermot Blount, Brian Fanning, Karl Heery and Mick O'Meara set the record for the fastest circumnavigation of Ireland, the record was to stand for over 20 years. The distance may not be as great as for the UK Circumnavigation but the remote coastline and exposure to the full force of Atlantic swells means that this is no easy trip to complete - and especially so in a record time.
