Noel C. Climbs Clara Mountain on Sunday

To conquer Clara Mountain in one’s 60s is a mighty achievement but to climb Clara Mountain in one’s 80s is quite magnificent . Well, that’s what Noel C. Duggan did last Sunday. Here he is pictured on the summit beside the Cross with June and Kevin Lucey while below he is photographed on Monday as he continues to work on his Shop Refubishment Project at The Bridge, Millstreet.  The previous time Noel C. was on Clara Mountain was in Eurovision Year 1993 when National Geographic Magazine featured him on a horse on top of the mountain!  Click on the images to enlarge. We thank June Lucey for the Clara picture. (S.R.)
