The Chief Commissioner's Award: final weekend

It's all over for another year. 60km, €3.50 a day, 8 projects and carrying your home on your back. Our four teams have been amazing. They all finished saying they couldn't have given more of themselves than they did and that is exactly what we were looking for.

We spent our final weekend at the Chief's having interviews, visiting  Father Ted's House, surfing and. of course, having the all-important ceremony and banquet.

We chose Poulnabrone Dolmen for our ceremony as it is one of the enduring monuments of the Burren. The sun shone (although storms were forecast) and the girls' squeals of joy could be heard all over as one by one we announced that they had all received cert, woggle and pin.

Gillian, Colleen and Cathy couldn't have asked for a more perfect end to a great week. Well done again everyone and we'll see you on the Explorer Belt!
