Corkman Niall McCarthy is taking on the challenge of the Ironman this June in Ireland’s Ancient East, in aid of Cork ARC Cancer Support House.

Niall McCarthy is aiming to conquer the course, a 3.8km sea swim from the sandy Claycastle beach in Youghal, followed by a 180km bike course along the undulating coastal roads and fishing villages of Ireland’s coast, ending in a fast and flat 42.2km run through the ancient 5th century town of Youghal.

Niall has also roped in his girlfiend Michelle to take part in the Ironman. We’re in awe of them both!

Show your support for Niall today, and make a secure donation to Cork ARC that will directly support cancer patients and their families with services such as counselling, pilates, support groups, ‘Get Active After Cancer’ programmes for men and information and education sessions.

If you’re following Cork ARC on social media, please use the #CorkARC tag!
