DAREDEVILS for a charity walk down the 17-storey Clarion Hotel are wanted for a fundraising spectacular later this month.
A second charity abseil down the iconic Limerick hotel will take place on April 27, organised by Age Action, the national charity for older people.
The charity have assembled a consortium of good causes who are recruiting volunteers for the 200-foot â€˜walkâ€™ down the side of the Clarion.
Last May up to 40 people took part in the eye-popping feat, and this year organisers hope to get 100 people â€˜walkingâ€™ down the side of the riverside hotel.
Self Help Africa - founded by Limerick man Ray Jordan - will take part in their second abseiling experience after 30 volunteers leapt from the roof of Thomond Park last year.
Mr Jordan said that the jump is a â€œgreat chance for thrill-seekers, and a great opportunity for people to do something worthwhile for the participating charitiesâ€.
Self Help Africaâ€™s Munster coordinator Gaye Moore said that volunteers are being asked to raise â‚¬285 in sponsorship to take part â€“ with the initial â‚¬85 registration fee going to Age Action, who have been coordinating the event.
The event is set to take place at the Clarion throughout the day, and anyone who is interested can get in touch with Self Help Africa by contacting Gaye on 087-2766012.
Participants must pay an â‚¬85 registration fee for the abseil.
