A team of 19 people took part in the challenge. "I spotted the HeadsUp Five Peaks Challenge on Facebook and signed up thinking it would be great to support suicide awareness and also give myself a challenge," Roy said.

"We really got challenged with the miserable weather and about five hours sleep over the four days but I relished every minute.

"I'd just like to thank all the people who sponsored me, the other participants and everyone involved in the organisation of the trip, for an epic adventure."

Anyone interested in taking part in the next Five Peaks Challenge in June 2015, call Kerry on 01 2100521 or email Kerry.houlihan@headsup.ie (www.headup.ie).
