Fermanagh climbers conqueror EverestFermanagh climbers conqueror Everest
Tuesday, 30th May 2006

Two Fermanagh men are among a group of climbers who have reached the summit of the world's highest mountain. Neil Elliott from Ballinamallard and dairy farmer Raymond Hassard from Church Hill, along with two English climbers, have reached the summit of Mount Everest, relaying the good news to relatives back home by text message. Mr Elliot said that spirits were high when the group reached the top and because it was a calm, clear day, they could see for "millions of miles". He said that he would treasure the experience forever. The Fermanagh expedition to the top of the world began in April and the climbers are expected to return home in the near future.
