A team from Co Monaghan features in the first episode of a new science adventure series for young people called The Mountain which starts this Friday January 21st at 5pm on RTÉ Two.
Kate Doherty (12), Jessica Connelly (12) and Alannah Cuddy (12) from Monaghan town take on a team from West Cork as their skills are put to the test in science-based challenges around an adventures style course. Who will have the brains, brawn, and stamina to be first to The Mountain summit?
The Mountain was recorded in Carlingford Adventure Centre, Co Louth. In each episode, two teams make use of scientific knowledge given to them to complete tasks in the rounds: Basecamp Experiment, The Big Predication and CSWhy? Crime Solving. The action culminates with the Final Assault obstacle course race to the summit.
