    Sir Darah:

    More than impressive… honestly. I can not think of a more hostile place on the planet… when you go to place from which there is absolutely no hope of rescue then you are truly an adventurer!
    Congrats compadre… you have joined a very elite group in pushing on…
    ‘When passing through hell, don’t stop’…
    That should get us through just about anything!

    Daragh,well done cousin, we were following your progress with interest. You even got a mention in school alongside Tom Crean. Clearly, you are in good company. A great achievement. Well done.

    I just ate a Lara bar and it tasted terrible. Why were they so good on the ice (at least some of them)? Congratulations on your incredible journey. I feel honored to now call you a friend and you can melt snow for me anytime day or night… but preferably morning – like 5:45. Safe travels home. I will keep Antarctica close to my heart and await our next…

  • By Liz and Brian, January 4, 2009 @ 5:25 pm

    Hooray! Wonderful news! Many, many congratulations to all concerned. It’s been a remarkable feat of endurance, and we shall raise a glass to them all, in hopes of a speedy homecoming. And perhaps a second glass to those who endured their absence.

  • By Tom and Adele Horgan, January 4, 2009 @ 4:24 pm

    Congratulations Daragh, a truly remarkable feat. The entire California and Guernsey based Horgan Clan salutes you.
    We’re sure that Anne and Conor are looking forward to you safe return.
    All the best,
    Tom, Adele and extended family

  • By David Moran, January 3, 2009 @ 5:55 pm

    Truly an amazing feat – as I write you must be drawing close. Congratulations to you all.

    Let me know when you are back – I owe you a pint…or two.

  • By Trisha Rogers, January 3, 2009 @ 5:05 pm

    Thanks so much for this fantastic blog, Anne. It has been wonderful to be kept so up-to-date and to know that you are sharing my obsessive interest in how our little group is faring, day by day at the bottom of the world. I’m longing to hear that they have arrived safely at their destination (even though Jeremy, I think, is planning not to make that the end of his whole expedition, but just the destination of the first phase and the start of his kite-ski adventure).

    Very best wishes


  • By Anne Horgan, January 3, 2009 @ 2:22 pm

    From: Jennifer, Karl, Hannah, Molly and Ciaran

    You should be nearly there… you crazy Horgan! We are sitting in the sunshine on the beautiful island of Guernsey, which is home to us at the moment, with Tom and Adele visiting so much talk about your expedition.
    Well done to you on doing this, what an achievement. There will now be a Horgan in the history books. We are all very proud of you in this household.
    My children are asking the same question as their second cousin… Any penguins?

  • By Jill Maxwell, December 29, 2008 @ 3:53 am

    Congratulations guys, you are going incredibly well. Happy New Year to all of you. I’m merrily watching from the sidelines while I enjoy Australian Christmas cheer. I look forward to seeing some photos. Love Jill Maxwell

  • By Maeve, Ben & Luka Perle, December 15, 2008 @ 9:56 pm

    Hi Cousin! Great to hear you are reaching your goals! Luka wants to know if you have seen any penguins or meteorites (best place to find them is the antarctic) yet?
    Bend is has a wind chill factor of -15 today- so we thought of you :) .
    Lots of best wishes for continued safety & sucess,

  • By Trisha Rogers, December 12, 2008 @ 10:40 am

    Dear Anne

    I am hugely appreciating your blog; thank you very much for updating it so frequently. My son, Jeremy Rogers, is one of Daragh’s team, so you can imagine that mentally I spend a lot of time with them ijn the Antarctic. It is really good to hear details of some of the day-to-day challenges they are facing, as well as of any fantastic experiences and fun they are having. When the wind falls and they have reasonable visibility, some of the views must be breathtaking (but then I suppose the whole experience is pretty breath-taking, in all senses!). It is very good to be in touch with you.

    Best wishes


  • By John FitzGerald, UCC, Cork, December 3, 2008 @ 9:44 pm

    Have been following your blog with great interest and admiration. I’ve no doubt that the spirits of your compatriots, the great Tom Crean, and Sir Ernest Shakelton, are hovering near you all and guiding you in your epic journey. I look forward some day to buying you and Anne a drink in that other unique, inaccessible, but less well known part of the globe, the South Pole Inn, Annascaul, Co. Kerry, Ireland!

  • By Tim Richardson, December 3, 2008 @ 2:27 pm

    If you think the weather is tough down there Daragh, you should try Newcastle at the moment, makes the Antarctic seem like a jungle! Good luck, and I expect a fridge magnet when you get back. Tim

  • By Janet Bennett, November 28, 2008 @ 1:54 pm

    Best of luck and hope the wind is allways behind you. From a warm somerset uk relation of Jill Maxwell

  • By Josephine, November 25, 2008 @ 11:40 pm

    Bravo Best of Irish luck to you Daragh and may the wind be always at your back.Up Cork!

  • By Bill & Sue, November 23, 2008 @ 10:10 pm

    We’ll be reading your up dates, Jill Maxwell is a friend of ours & it’s great knowing what’s happening, good luck to you all, wish I was there with you all.

  • By John Harrington, November 20, 2008 @ 9:04 pm

    Best of Luck to my nutter of a brother. Eric can’t figure out why you’re going to the South Pole when Santa lives in the North Pole. We are all really proud of you and will be looking forward to your safe return. Loads of Love!

  • By David, October 31, 2008 @ 12:21 pm

    No slacking Horgan, I expect you do it in no more than 44.5 days! Good luck and say hello to the penguins!
