Bishop John McDowell Takes A Leap Of Faith For Summer Madness

 

The Rt Revd John McDowell, Bishop of Clogher and President of the Church of Ireland Youth Department (CIYD), joined almost 140 others in hurtling down a 100 metre high Zip Line at Magheracross Car Park near Dunluce Castle on the North Antrim Coast in support of the Christian Youth Festival ‘Summer Madness’.

On Saturday 28th September 2013 hundreds of locals and holiday visitors were treated to a spectacular Zip Line experience, creating one of the most impressive spectacles on the North Coast this year.

The Summer Madness Youth Festival held the fundraising Zip Wire event more than 100 metres above the coastline below. Organiser, John Kee said ‘The stunning location was just begging for such an adventure and the weather turned the occasion into the most fabulous event we could have hoped for!’
