Gerard McDonnell to be listed amongst Irish hereos

Gerard McDonnell will be listed as amongst 15 Irish heroes in a new book. He died after making the summit of K2 in 2008. What was heroic about it was that he tried to help 3 other climbers who were helplessly tied amongst ropes above 8000m. McDonnell died on the descent.

The author of the book, Ian McKeever, will write a chapter on his life. He has the support of McDonnell’s family and friends to write it. They provided information towards the book.
