Niall has arrived into Santiago de Compostela this evening, 21 long days after he started this epic challenge.

A message from Margo (Niall’s one woman support team!) told us they were in great spirits arriving into the city this evening. She said the Cathedral was closed off to all tourists and a short mass and get together was held for the pilgrims arriving into Santiago. Niall and Margo joined about ten other pilgrims for this, each person reaching the end of their own personal journey.

But not Niall! His journey is not quite over yet as he embarks on the final leg of the challenge- to the end of the earth for Ronnie. Niall will set off for Finisterre (end of the earth) early in the morning, and we are all wishing him well on the home straight.

For now however he will do a quick interview with the Irish Independent, and according to Margo have a glass of champers to celebrate the brilliant achievement in getting to Santiago; followed by a good rest tonight!

Niall sends his thanks to everyone who has donated to Brain Tumour Ireland and sent supportive messages to keep him going through the last few weeks. Onwards and upwards to Finisterre!!
