NI: Three Northern Ireland solicitors to compete against southern colleagues in Iron Law Triathlon
Three Northern Ireland solicitors will compete against their colleagues from south of the border in exhaustive physical challenges to raise funds for solicitors and their families during difficult times.
The solicitors are part of the Law Society of Northern Ireland team in the inaugural Iron Law Triathlon challenge, which will encompass three provinces, six counties and at least six border crossings over the course of one day.
The team includes Peter Jack from RG Connell & Son in Limavady; Darren Toombs from Carson McDowell in Belfast; and Adam Wood from Campbell & Haughey Solicitors Ltd in Lurgan.
As part of the race, Mr Jack will swim Lough Melvin, Mr Toombs with cycle from Garrison, Fermanagh to Maynooth, and Mr Wood will run from Maynooth to Blackhall Place via Phoenix Park.
They will be competing against a team representing the Law Society of Ireland.
All proceeds from the competition will go towards supporting the work of the Solicitors’ Benevolent Association (SBA), which helps solicitors and their families who are experiencing difficult times.
Suzanne Rice, president of the Law Society of Northern Ireland, said: “We are delighted to support Darren, Adam and Peter and we wish them the very best as they seek to undertake this challenge in support of the Solicitors’ Benevolent Association.
“I wish to encourage as many as possible to support our team, make a donation and cheer the boys on to bring home the trophy.”
