What is abseiling?

Abseiling is the controlled descent down a rock face or cliff using rope and specialist equipment.

What is the challenge?

The Solas Project Abseilling Challenge requires repelling 140 feet from the roof of the Hogan Stand at Croke Park! This will be an exciting, once in a lifetime, bucket-list experience. It may be scary. It will definitely be fun.


Aside from the adrenaline rush, you'll also be supporting Solas Project in its mission to create opportunities for young people in the Liberties and Dublin 8.


The Solas Project Abseiling Challenge will take place on Saturday, 11th May.

  1. Register your name and interest by emailing Andrew Kinsella (andrew@solasproject.ie).
