IF you’re feeling energetic this weekend then you may be interested in a fundraising climb taking place this Sunday.

The third annual charity ‘Climb to Remember’ takes place on Sunday, June 8 and will see people from all over Munster rise to the challenge of climbing Ireland’s highest peak, Carrauntoohil, in memory of a loved one, with funds raised going towards The Mercy Hospital Foundation.

Proceeds raised at this year’s ‘Climb to Remember’ will benefit three key appeals launched earlier to raise vital funds to enhance cardiology, stroke, and cancer services at The Mercy University Hospital.

Registration will take place at the Upper Car Park at Lisleibane from 9am until 9.45am.

At 10am, under the guidance of experienced mountain leaders, participants will begin their climb from Lisleibane. Travelling up Brother O’Shea’s Gully and past the Beenkeeragh Ridge, climbers will reach the top of Brother O Shea’s and will be greeted with a spectacular view down into Coomloughra with Dingle Bay and the Brandon group to the northwest.

Passing the top of the Central and Curved Gullies, they will emerge onto the summit. Following a break at the summit, it will be time to make the descent down the Devils Ladder.

Castlegregory native, Deirdre Finn, who is Community and Events Fundraiser at the Mercy Hospital Foundation says “Our mission is to support the Hospital in delivering the highest quality of patient care by raising funds to support advancements and innovation in the treatment and care of patients at the Mercy Hospital, the People’s Hospital. We promise to do our very best to provide the people of Munster with a world class hospital, and this is only possible through the help of our supporters and donors, like those who step up to the mark, and ‘Climb to Remember’ each June.”

Registration fee is €25. Register by logging onto or calling (021) 4274076. Registration will also be available on the morning of the event.
