70-year-old Tuam Mother and Baby Home survivor Seosamh Ó Maolchroin is climbing Croagh Patrick for a fifth time this year.

The Aughagower man is committed to scaling the Reek seven times during 2022 in memory of the babies who died in the Tuam facility in 1952, the year he entered the home.

This Sunday, he will remember Patrick Naughton from Camus, Oughterard, Co Galway, who died in the home at 12 days old on May 2, 1952.

Anyone who wants to join Mr Ó Maolchroin can meet at Murrisk car park at 10.30am, with the climb beginning at 11am.
