In Pictures: All smiles as Laois TY group take on the Bogathon

This looks like great craic!

On Monday October 5, a group of TY students from Mountrath Community School headed for the bog.

Not to foot turf – but rather to take part in a Bogathon mud run in Lisduff Adventure Centre, Errill.

It’s a tough course, 7km in total, over a variety of landscapes including some of Ireland’s most rugged countryside and barren bog lands.

The course challenges your fitness, mental fortitude, stamina and strength of character.

Student Sam Brennan said: “It was really testing, you had to work as a team to get everyone around the course and we did just that.”

While fellow Student Eoghan Cuddy said: “It was really enjoyable and I would recommend it.”

Mountrath Community School’s TY co-ordinator Mary Gannon says that the feedback is always positive.

And she also confirmed that this activity can be used for the Gaisce Awards.
