Date:  08/12/2020

Mountaineering Ireland is delighted to announce the awarding of Honorary Membership to Terry O’Connor.

Terry has played a huge role in the promotion and development of climbing in Ireland for over thirty years. His contribution to Irish climbing is incredibly far-reaching, encompassing aspects of our sport from Himalayan expeditions to local indoor bouldering competitions.

For the Irish Expedition to K2 Terry accepted the role of Base Camp Manager. As a club member Terry played large part in the delivery of the Irish Mountaineering Club’s beginners’ course for several years. Through much of the 1990s Terry was part of the team who put in a huge amount of work organising and running the very popular Irish Bouldering League.

As Terry’s son Daragh became more interested in climbing his focus shifted towards the promotion and development of youth climbing. Terry established the Winders Climbing Club, which since its inception has provided innumerable young climbers the opportunity to experience, enjoy and excel in climbing. Terry’s talent as a coach led him to taking on the role of Coach of the Youth Climbing Team.

Mountaineering Ireland, on behalf of our members would like to take this opportunity to thank Terry for all his dedication over the years to help so many people develop their passion for all things climbing.
