Charlie Bird says he expects around three million euro to be raised through his Climb With Charlie fundraiser.

It follows the huge success of the climb on Mayo's Croagh Patrick on 2nd April last, while tens of thousands of people took part in almost 200 Climb with Charlie fundraisers across the world.

In an update, the former RTE broadcaster says funds raised are now at almost two and a half million euro, with another quarter of a million due in shortly.

Charlie Bird was diagnosed with motor neurone disease last year, and undertook the climb of the Reek to help raise money and awareness for the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association and Pieta House.
