In 2014 over 30,000 people climbed the famous mountain known as the 'reek' starting as early as 12 midnight to any time in the middle of the day. When I climbed the reek this year we started at 4am it took approximately one hour and a half to climb from bottom to top and one hour and ten minutes approximately from top to bottom. When climbing you will even see people climbing in their bare feet.
Through the years the CBS Religion teacher Mr. Moran has brought his third year Religion classes on the Pilgrimage that is Croagh Patrick he said it is a great way for the lads to end their junior cert Religion studies by taking part in a fun filled event while also sticking to the religious meaning. Also if you ask many of the past third years they enjoyed the trip a lot.
So those of you who don't know about Croagh Patrick look it up and arrange to climb it in your free time it is open all year round and is free.
