Limerick Man Barry Lenahan to Climb 26 Peaks of Ireland in Aid of Limerick Suicide Watch
By I Love Limerick correspondent Abby Ward
Limerick Man Barry Lenahan is climbing 26 of Ireland’s highest peaks throughout 2022 in aid of Limerick Suicide watch.
Barry said, “Limerick Suicide Watch is my chosen charity for my 26 peaks of Ireland which I aim to complete by the end of 2022 at the latest. My goal is to have completed all 26 peaks of Ireland by the end of 2022 and to reach his donation goal on GoFundMe. I plan to complete this challenge by the end of the year and is hoping that the local and wider community so I can help to raise money for this incredible local volunteer group.”
The 26 highest peaks span across 32 counties in Ireland. The highest of peaks Barry will face climbing is Carrauntoohil in County Kerry. The peak stands at 1039 metres.
Limerick Suicide Watch is a voluntary organisation that patrols the bridges in Limerick City, providing support to those in distress or who may be contemplating suicide.
Limerick Suicide Watch visits schools, places of work and operates seven nights a week over the Shannon River. They are currently looking for new volunteers and currently looking for a new location due to council rules.
They are a group of volunteers that depend solely on donations from the public as they get no government funding. They provide all adequate first aid training if you agree to become a volunteer.
The money raised will help fund training, purchase safety equipment and go towards the day-to-day operation of the group.
