Jonathan Shackleton (Grafton 68)

Jonathan continues to travel to Antarctica, completing his 40th trip in 2016 in the footsteps of his cousin, Sir Ernest Shackleton. The highlight last year was being present on 30 August in Athy, County Kildare, Ireland at the unveiling of an outstanding statue of Irish born Antarctic explorer, Ernest Shackleton by the Old Stoic sculptor, Mark Richards (Walpole 76). The photo shows the statue with Mark Richards on the left and Jonathan Shackleton on the right of the statue.
