Following a conversation with the team today at noon irish time from their hotel in Punta Arenas, Chile. They can confirm their arrival in to Cork Airport, Ireland at approx. 7pm Thursday the 17th.

We will officially release final details to the press tomorrow Wednesday 16th.

Pat said “We didn’t get any sleep on the flight here… Totally exhausted now after organising our gear from the plane, about to have my first proper shower in months. The rest are asleep at the moment. We are delighted to have the second leg of our journey home over, we are now confident on getting home to green Ireland on Thursday. It was weird stepping on to unfrozen ground for the first time today in nearly 80 days. Can’t wait to be home.”
