He was ably supported for the Japanese swim by his good friend Noel Browne and support crew. His training included long and record making swims around the great Fastnet Rock off Co. Cork.
His ‘Oceans 7’ cost an average of €10,000 per swim, coming to a total of €100,00. He had huge support and sponsorship from the West County Cork Ballydehob community where he lives, and is originally from Castledermot, Co. Kildare. He is not finished, hoping to do mega swims to fundraise for a local charity.
We can wonder at his super-human strength. His is a good news story and we are pleased for him and his family and proud of his achievement.
He said during the challenge that the greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.
