'Ultra cyclist' scales heights for charity

Stiff-legged and weary, 'ultra cyclist' Donncha Cuttriss (34) allowed himself a smile after making history by pedalling up the notorious St Patrick's Hill in Cork city 100 times in just over six hours and 28 minutes to raise funds for charity.

A crowd of more than 100 people gathered to cheer on Mr Cuttriss who crossed the finished line at 4.29pm after covering a distance of 60 miles.

Mr Cuttriss, from Mayfield in Cork, took on the challenge to raise funds and awareness for Mayfield Action on Suicide.

"It went very well . . . of course it was tough, but not as tough as the challenges other people are facing every day," he said afterwards.

"I'm delighted. The support was fantastic," he added.
