Limerick Rose Kayleigh Maher is to abseil down Thomond Park stadium in aid of ADAPT House domestic abuse services.

Kayleigh from Kilcornan, Co.Limerick became the first Limerick Rose for a decade to feature on RTE’s live shows in Tralee last year.




Kayleigh says, “I love to walk hills and I also rock climb. I have climbed mountains throughout Ireland and abroad including reaching the summit of Mount Sinai in Egypt and also scaling the highest climbing wall in Vietnam. I am honoured to take part in the Abseil for ADAPT event at Thomond Park to raise much-needed funds and awareness for ADAPT.”

The event will take place just a few hours before the official selection event for the 2018 Limerick Rose at the city stadium.

The ‘Abseil for ADAPT’ challenge takes place on Saturday, March 10, when participants can conquer their fear of heights and enjoy unique views of the iconic home of Munster Rugby, all while raising funds for ADAPT.

Over 40 participants have already signed up, including groups of sisters, cousins, friends and co-workers, all spurring each other on to conquer their fear of heights.
