A 22-strong team from Grafton Merchanting has climbed the highest mountain in each of Ireland's four provinces to raise money for four charities.

The group travelled around the country, climbing the peaks in just four days. The fundraising target of €40,000 was easily beaten, with almost €70,000 raised.
