Course Design

This course is designed by Franky Wright who has worked in the provision of outdoor education for over 30 years.  Along with his wife Trish, he currently runs the Lilliput Adventure Centre.  He was accompanied by his climbing partner and good friend Paul Mc Quaid.  They have both climbed mountains all over the world and are the current holders of the record for climbing the highest peak in every county in Ireland, 5 days.  Paul is the Director of Paramedic training in Sydney Hospital and has been adventure racing in Australia for almost 10 years. Gerry McQuaid an accomplished runner and coach who studied in the states, also offered his expertise.  Gerry most recently coached the Wexford senior & intermediate ladies camogie team to an historic All Ireland double.  He currently teaches PE in Waterford.
