flowerThank You

We have dedicated this area to pay special tribute to the extremely generous people who have made a contribution to CRY. It is because of these amazing people that CRY is able to keep our doors open as we do not receive any government funding. All at CRY would like to express our sincerest thanks to everyone who has provided us with support.

BeFunky Collage

We received a signed copy of Scrambles in Ulster and Connacht - Great Scrambling Routes from Alan Tees, Author published by The Collins Press.

Alan from Derry/Londonderry but a long time Donegal resident has been enjoying the north-western Irish hills for over forty years, climbing and logging over 300 new rock climbs in the region. Alan has generously donated his royalties to Cry in memory of his first wife, Irene.

Thank you Alan for your generosity - greatly appreciated and we wish you every success with the Guide.
