Outsider Awards 2023

10 February 2024

Women With Altitude nominated at this year's Outsider Awards.

We’re delighted to announce that our 2023 Women With Altitude event, held in Clonbur last May and attended by over 100 women, was nominated in the ‘Best Outdoor Event of the Year’ category at this year’s Outsider Awards. This is a public vote category, so we’d really appreciate if you could take a few seconds to vote for our event here.

We were also delighted to see that Laura McEvoy was nominated in the ‘Most Inspiring Person of the Year’ category for her incredible feat of abseiling down the Rathlin Wall at Fairhead and then climbing back up again, just one year after suffering serious injuries in a car accident. You can read more about her nomination here.

Hugh McLindon was nominated in the ‘Most Devoted to the Outdoor Scene’ category for his work on a peatland restoration project in Wicklow Mountains National Park. Mountaineering Ireland members have been volunteering on this project with Hugh, which is set to continue in 2024. You can read more about Hugh’s nomination here, and if this sparks your interest in volunteering on this project, please get in touch with caoilainn@mountaineering.ie.
