Abseil for Brain Injury this April!

The challenge will be to abseil down the iconic Skyview Tower, so this is truly a unique opportunity!

From the top you will have breath-taking unobstructed views of Dublin stretching as far as Howth and Killiney. This huge red brick tower dominates the Smithfield skyline and is the former chimney for the iconic Jameson Distillery.

We are partnering with an expert abseil team who will get you harnessed up and ensure you are kept safe.
