However, as his 40s beckoned, Enda declared to his wife, Maeve, that his drinking days were over.

Wicklow native Enda O’Doherty is an extraordinary man with an extraordinary story to share. In a story co-written with journalist Dermot Keyes, Enda takes readers through his youth and an alcohol sodden adulthood. However, as his 40s beckoned, Enda declared to his wife, Maeve, that his drinking days were over.

It was time to choose life and a sense of adventure – with a washing machine! Over a dozen years into sobriety and revelling in his new life, Enda has undergone a physical and emotional re-awakening as an endurance athlete, which has, incredibly, included carrying a washing machine from Belfast to Waterford in 2015 (covering nine marathon distances in eight days), and hauling his appliance to within a few hours of the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in 2017, both in aid of Pieta House, the suicide prevention charity.

Enda’s story traces the highs and lows of a life fully lived, the debt he owes to his family, how he has positively exploited his addictive personality, and his passion for teaching, while also disclosing his own ‘survival toolkit’ on how to make tomorrow better than today.

Fuelled by 29 years as a teacher, in addition to 6 years as a motivational speaker, this deeply personal adventure demonstrates the power of the human spirit along with Enda’s efforts to promote positive mental health. Reflective, entertaining and inspiring, Enda’s story is one worth reading if wringing every drop out of life is on your ‘To Do’ list.
