On this week’s podcast, Michael gets an update from Réamonn Byrne about his attempt to row from New York to Ireland as part of the three-man team known as The Hard Way Home.
Réamonn, who is from Waterford, along with Americans Chris McCaffrey and Ryen Cosgro are embarking on a 3000-mile voyage to raise funds for the Kevin Bell Repatriation Fund Trust.
The team set sail on June 15 but suffered a major setback shortly into the voyage and had to be pulled ashore to Cape Cod after losing power.
Reamonn gives Michael a rundown on what exactly happened and what the team’s plans are going forward.
To keep up to date with the latest developments of the team follow them on @thehardwayhome.
