Thomond Park will be home to a new challenge on Saturday 23rd September, with Munster fans, daredevils, thrill seekers and all those brave enough to try, invited to cast off all cares and abseil  down 40 metres, from the heights of Thomond Park, in aid of ISPCC Childline.

The abseil will take place from the West Stand, from above the media box where some of the most most exciting commentary in rugby has been delivered in

matches gone by, down the front of the building. Abseilers will get a fantastic panoramic view of the iconic stadium before their descent. Though abseils have been held here before they have not used this route, which is higher and commands a more impressive challenge and view.

Following the abseil, all participants are invited to partake in a barbeque event, and friends and family are welcome to witness their descent and join the party. Abseil slots begin from 10am, with barbeque served from 12.

Each participant is required to raise €265 in sponsorship. Participants can register by logging on to the everyday hero website and searching for Thomond Park.


Childline is Ireland’s only 24-hour listening service for children and young people, and answers over 400,000 calls, texts and online contacts every year, from children who need to talk. The service is free and private for children, and the majority of its service is provided by volunteers. Childline needs to raise almost 85 per cent of its annual costs through fundraising, and that is only possible through the generosity of the public.

ISPCC Interim CEO Caroline O’Sullivan said “this is a great opportunity for people from across Munster  to support Childline while having a fantastic experience at the same time.

We really appreciate the efforts people go to raise their sponsorship money, and then the courage to jump off the highest point of Thomond Park! It’s going to be an exhilarating experience and we hope everyone will enjoy it, knowing that they are raising money for a great cause.
