Irene has completed the fourth stop on her 50,000 mile adventure, Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina.

The stillness of the Plaza San Martin took Irene by surprise as she stood, with no movement in the air, ready to play her bagpipes. People came nearer to watch and requested she play 'A long way to Tipperary' to which she gladly obliged.

Bagpiping truly is an instrument that can be enjoyed by all people no matter your age, gender or nationality. This was proven on this trip as Irene says: "A man came over weeping because of the beauty of the music and a young boy to tell me that he thought I was amazing." It is fantastic that, whilst raising money for charity, Irene is also spreading joy around the globe.

This challenge is in an effort to raise £50,000 for the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and Julia’s House. You can donate to her cause at
