Day 2: Greystones (Wicklow) – Howth (Dublin)

Before heading off today I knew that I was in for a hell of a day, the forecast was not good (Storm Eleanor was on its way) and the distance to cover was going to be tough.

I started off from Greystones RNLI station at 9am as planned, the girls from Kilcoole ran with me and the first hour or so was great, then a slow decline. I met many lovely people throughout the day had a sambo in Shankill then the lovely Roisin Faherty turned up near Dun Laoghaire. We popped into the lifeboat station and were treated to coffee and mince pies, just before that Orla Cooper gave us a big shout out. My darling sister and brother in law Mike kept popping up everywhere and they transported my heavy bag from Greystones to Howth.

During the day I had a great interview on East Coast Radio. Below is a picture of me with the RNLI crew and Roisin Faherty at DunLaoghaire RNLI.

After the longest day, battling brutal winds and heavy rain, I finally made it to Howth.

I’m now in Alison Behan Reddin parent’s house being treated like royalty :). Thanks so much to everyone who is making my journey so special. Last but not least Claire Jenkinson and hubby who joined me many times and took videos and photos and also helped me out with East Coast Radio interview this morning.
