Dillon’s Challenges – Get your cert
Dillon Lynch is no ordinary 12 year old. He climbed his first mountain at the age of 3 and by the time he was 9, he had already hiked to the top of all of the highest points in each county in Ireland.
These included the highest peaks in each province, leading to him winning an award for being the Youngest Person ever to complete this challenge.
Having completed this feat, Dillon and his Dad, Pat, have been undertaking many more mountain challenges, including the Mainland Munster High Point Challenge. In this short documentary, we accompany Dillon and Pat as they brave the elements to climb to the top of the 49th and final mountain on this challenge, Mount Eagle, outside Dingle in Co. Kerry.
Along with climbing mountains, Dillon is also National and World Karate medal holder, an avid coder, and an inspiration to us all, young and old.
He has put the call to boys and girls all over Ireland to get out and take on a challenge.
Well done on completing your task and you deserve this certificate.
The certs can be shared online using #DillonsChallenges
Dillon’s Adventures will air on October 26th and you can always catch up on RTÉ Player.
