Charity fundraisers to tackle peak in Offaly mountains in epic challenge

Epilepsy Ireland is looking for participants for our 2019 Ireland’s Ancient East Peaks Challenge which will take in the Slieve Bloom mountains Laois and Offaly.

Taking place on June 29/30, participants will experience breath-taking scenery, challenge themselves to achieve a monumental goal and raise much-needed money for Epilepsy Ireland.

The featured mountains are; Lugalla 595m, Lugnaquilla 925m, Blackstairs 732m and the Ridge of Capard standing at 509m in the Slieve Blooms.

Afterwards, there will a medieval banquet where climbers will dine from a slowly roast pig on a spit, while there will also be story-telling and much more.

Why not get your friends, family or work colleagues involved and make it a Team Challenge? 

To join us on this challenge, participants are asked to raise a minimum of €575.

Once registered, you will receive a fundraising pack which will include a list of fundraising event suggestions along with tips and hints on how to organise and promote your event.

The challenge will require a good level of fitness and endurance. A deposit of €50 is required to secure your place.

Included:


•       All transport and accommodation
•       All food including snacks for each mountain
•       Professional guides to take us up each mountain
•       A celebratory meal on completion of our last mountain
