The Mountain Fridays from January 21st at 5pm on TRTÉ
Friday’s episode of The Mountain, TRTÉ’s new 12 part science and adventure series, sees Co Sligo take on Co Armagh in science-based challenges around an adventure style course.
Ian Herron (11), Emma Johnston (12), Henry Armstrong (11) from Armagh city and Colin Gilligan (12), Eoin Davey (11) and Éania McGarry (11 ) from Carraroe Co Sligo must make use of scientific knowledge given to them to complete tasks in the rounds: Basecamp Experiment, The Big Predication and CSWhy? Crime Solving.
After each round, the victors can select an opponent to send to the ‘Pit’ or can bring back a team member from the ‘Pit’. At the end of round three, there’s a chance to break out of the ‘Pit’ by solving The Mountain Cipher. The action culminates with the Final Assault obstacle course race to the summit.

Hubble’s WATER SAVING slogan
Drip drop drip drop
Water we will catch,
We’ll be very careful
We won’t let it splash.
Drip drop drip drop
We’ll save every drop,
When we brush our teeth
The water tap we’ll stop.
Drip Drop drip drop
It’s time for everyone
To put a stop to every drop
With hubble, it is fun.
