Thrill Seekers Sought for ‘Croke Park 100ft Abseil’ in aid of Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA)

IMNDA Photocall 1 - REPRO FREE IMAGERTE’S Off the Rails presenters Brendan Courtney and Sonya Lennon make adventure fashionable as they launched the “Croke Park 100 ft Abseil” in aid of the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) today.

The IMNDA are looking for thrill seekers to undertake this exciting and unique challenge alongside Brendan and Sonya on Saturday 9th October and abseil 100ft from the roof of Croke Park’s Hogan Stand raising funds and awareness for people with Motor Neurone Disease.


Motor Neurone Disease is a progressive neurological condition that attacks the upper and lower motor neurones. In Ireland, one person dies every five days from this devastating disease. It is a condition that leaves people unable to do the everyday things that the rest of us take for granted. Walking, talking and swallowing may become virtually impossible. MND strikes people across all ages and there is currently no known cure.


The IMNDA is dedicated to providing care for people with MND, their carers and families such as specialised equipment on loan, home visiting by our MND Nurse Specialist and financial assistance towards home help. The association also funds research into the causes and treatments of this debilitating disease.

The IMNDA marks 25 years of care and research this year so it is the perfect time to get involved with one special event. We are a small organisation relying heavily on fundraising to make our vital work possible.
