32 county hitch hike - starting in Sligo....carrying a microwave!

A brave young man is embarking on a marathon hitchhike through all 32 counties on the Island of Ireland....carrying a microwave oven!

Diarmuid McCleary plans to make the journey, with no money, to raise money for the mental health charity Jigsaw without spending a penny and relying totally on the kindness of local people and businesses.

The Vice President for Events DIT Student's Union will be starting the journey this Friday (6 April) in Sligo and will make the trip to Ballinasloe, Co Galway.

All money raised will be given to Jigsaw and so far he's raised 180 and aiming to get over 2,000 and has set up a GoFundMe page where readers can donate to this worthy cause.

JustEatIreland have now joined the initiative and will sponsor his food from their hundreds of member outlets throughout the country.

Diarmuid would be grateful for anyone in Sligo who can provide accommodation before he sets off on Friday. he can be contacted through his Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/themicrowaveexpress/?ref=br_rs
