In Pictures: Mighty craic as Laois TY group take on the Bogathon

Bogathon Mountrath

This looks like great craic!

On Thursday September 30, 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.

Ms Mary Gannon, TY coordinator, said: “The course is designed to challenge you in every way, testing physical fitness, mental fortitude, stamina and strength of character.”

Student Charlie Donnery said: “You have to just do it, to truly tackle the challenge, to succeed. It’s well worth a go.”

Student Lauren Lahart said: “It was the most enjoyable day in a school activity, everyone was looking out for each other, to get through the course.”
