Pat Falvey’s story is one of courage and triumph and of how to turn adversity to advantage. A millionaire by the age of 26, at 29 he was almost broke. But the tough times experienced in his childhood stood him in good stead. As he coped with financial problems head on, he was also discovering the great outdoors and his incredible positive energy propelled him to new goals in the world of adventure.
This culminated in his odyssey to compete the Seven Summits challenge which involved climbing the highest peak in each of the seven continents, including Mount Everest.
