Ciaran's Summit is a Rail Odyssey

They are not all loopers in the Green Party - take Ciaran Cuffe for example, he is a man who lives by his ideals and beliefs.

Currently in Copenhagen for the United Nations Climate Change conference, Ciaran was determined not to increase his carbon footprint by flying to the Danish capital.

Instead he took the long route there.

He left from Dun Laoghaire on the ferry to Holyhead on Sunday afternoon and then got a train to London.

He overnighted in London and then caught the Eurostar to Brussels and then on to Cologne where be boarded a night-sleeper to the Danish capital.

A trip that would have taken less than three hours by air was instead a two-day odyssey across Europe for Ciaran.
