Sunriseupcroaghpatrick is an annual get-together of friends who climb Croagh Patrick or walk nearby, have a super time & raise funds for worthwhile charities fighting Neurological Diseases. Funds raised goes towards providing increased Specialist Care to help people with conditions and their families.

It was initially organised by John Kelly (St Jarlath’s 1979) and supported by his University classmates (BComm UCD 82) and work colleagues from Hanson Regan. The event has grown and attracted wider support from many great people who have been affected by Huntington’s Disease, Parkinson’s and Motor Neuron Disease. Last year’s event was held on the last weekend in June ; We had a wonderful couple of days blessed by the weather for our Climb & Walk.

We had a post event dinner where many stayed at the Westport Plaza Hotel. They have kindly extended a special deal again this year, €209 for two nights sharing B&B & 1 dinner. So, why not join us for this great weekend of activities in Westport, on 29th June 2019 , for our 5th annual #SunriseupCroaghPatrick event. You can choose to Climb Croagh Patrick or Walk the Murrisk Loop Walks.

Both will start from the Croagh Patrick Visitor Centre at 10:00 am. Form a group of your colleagues and friends, or come on your own and mingle with the whole gang. Everyone is welcome.

Register for the event here or if you can’t make it, you can sponsor others who are making the trip.
