Relentless Rowers: Four Irish men begin rowing across the Atlantic to raise funds for CUH

Four Irish men today start rowing across the Atlantic to raise funds for Cork University Hospital.

They are also trying to break a world record, by rowing over 5,000 kilometres in under 35 days.

The 'Relentless' rowers are Seán Underwood, Patrick O'Connor, Eoin O'Farrell and Thomas Browne - who says you can track their journey on Facebook or Twitter.

He said: "It is about 5,000 kilometres and is going to take us hopefully less than 50 days.

"We are also hoping to raise €20,000 for CUH to get two dialysis machines, we are currently on €18,000 so hopefully we will reach (the target).

Their journey can be tracked live at or on their social media:
