Gavan Hennigan on the "miracle" of rowing the Atlantic

Irish adventurer Gavan Hennigan woke up on Irish soil on Monday morning for the first time in 2017.

The Galwayman returned to Dublin Airport on Sunday afternoon, just over a week after rowing across the Atlantic. Hennigan competed in the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge, finishing the race in third place. He was the first solo rower to complete the race, in just under 50 days.
