Hundreds of people made their way up Errigal to see climber Jason Black return the Donegal flag to the top of the mountain on Saturday.

The Letterkenny man recently became the first Donegal man to reach the top of Everest. The journey began with an inspiring oration from the County Mayor Ian McGarvey. Former Letterkenny Mayor, Dessie Larkin was also present at the event and accompanied his family to the top of Errigal. At the top, Jason returned the flag and told those present that he was delighted to return the flag to where his dream first began. The day was overseen by the Mountain Rescue team. Everyone was treated to ice cream at the foot of the mountain. Tea and sandwiches were later served in Rabhartaigh’s of Dunlewey.
