A spokesman for the 10 Islands Challenge said the entire village is behind the two men in their challenge.“The financial mess and its fall-out this country is currently facing may not be of our doing but we are jointly responsible to turn the tide, not just for us but for our children and our children’s children.“The people of Mountcharles, County Donegal firmly believe that the economic recovery of Ireland as a whole starts with little steps in villages like theirs.“Joe Coyle and John McGroary are taking the first positive step towards a better future for us all. They have the full support of Mountcharles village behind them while they bravely take on their 10 Islands Challenge,” he said.Ends THEY WANT TO TAKE YOU TO THE ISLAND – ALL TEN OF THEM! was last modified: August 16th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:10 Island ChallengeMOUNTCHARLESlast_img
