A Drumkeen native is getting ready to embark on a cool adventure to create history by being one of the first people to ever walk to the “Northern Pole of Inaccessibility” and a trailer of a documentary about the event has just been released.

Justin Toner has been accepted onto a programme under renowned Polar explorer, Jim McNeil, who explains here that the event will see a group attempt to be the first to access the infamous geographical point, otherwise known as the “Arctic Pole”.

He has spent recent years working in the Middle East as a quantity surveyor and in now getting ready to undertake the challenge of a lifetime during a sabbatical from his career.

He has been spending recent months in Norway preparing the event that will see them carry out important scientific research while under taking the challenge.
