It is not every day the chain of the Mayor of Galway makes it up Croagh Patrick — Mayor Mike Cubbard joined 100 people from the Insurance industry as they took on Croagh Patrick in a fundraising event in aid of Youth Mental Health charity, Jigsaw.
“Jigsaw does trojan work and must be commended for what they do on a daily basis. Therefore I was delighted to accept an invitation to take part in the climb from the President of the Insurance Institute in Galway, Jim Molloy, “ said Mayor Cubbard.
“As Mayor I have vowed to lead by example and creating awareness around mental health issues and services as well as raising funds like this today are ways of doing that.
“I am not too sure how often the Mayoral chain has been up the top of the reek but I am sure this is a rather unique experience,” he said.
