Everest mountaineer dedicates achievement to young people battling mental health challenges
John Burke returns to hero’s welcome at Shannon Airport
Friday, 19 May 2017: Everest mountaineer John Burke returned to a rousing Shannon Airport and Co. Clare welcome today and dedicated his triumph to young people going through personal challenges.
Just six days after he became the first Co. Clare man to reach the summit, the 38 year-old said that his big motivation for taking on the mammoth and dangerous challenge was to prove to young people that anything is achievable if they put their mind to it.
The proprietor of one of the Wild Atlantic Way’s best known hotels, the Armada Hotel in Spanish Point, and his wife Aoibhín have established a charity, Elevate, to promote wellbeing among young people and provide encouragement to them to reach their potential and follow their dreams in life. 
And on his return at Shannon Airport, he said that the mental health of young people and the challenges posed by blunt end of social media are amongst the greatest issues facing Ireland today.
