This lad having a sneaky smoke on Croagh Patrick sums up our feelings about hiking

When you try to be healthy but just say, feck it.

YESTERDAY, THE ANNUAL pilgrimage up Croagh Patrick took place. Reek Sunday sees about 20,000 Irish people climbing the mountain in Mayo, many barefoot.

Of course, Nuacht RTÉ was on hand to report on the footfall, and caught this lad having a sneaky smoke break on his way up the holy mountain.

He is all of us with good intentions
