Two Donegal men are undertaking a unique challenge on Saturday to raise much needed funds for the RNLI.

Niall Clancy is going to run from Bundoran to Arranmore Island ( including a spell on the ferry on a treadmill) while James McIntyre is going to run, cycle and Kayak a different route between Bundoran and Arranmore.

The two men hope to cover the distance in 10 hours starting at 6am on Saturday morning.

It is the first time such a challenge has been undertaken - Niall Clancy has been explaining why they decided to take it on:
