Con, Sarah & Niamh's Parachute Jump

On the 24th September Con Lehane, Sarah Hodkinson and Niamh Falvey each undertook a sponsored tandem sky dive from 10,000 feet with the Irish Parachute Club in support of the Shehy Wind Action Group, who are opposing the development of a large scale industrial wind farm around the iconic Shehy Mountain. Funds raised will go towards our High Court Action. Please support us and help save Shehy for future generations. Thank you so much to all our supporters so far!!

Fundraising Update

As you all know going to the high court is not cheap. We have so far been able to meet our first three payment deadlines and have raised over €75,000. This is an incredible achievement and we would like to thank everyone who has contributed so far.

We have had several successful fundraisers including a concert in Inchigeela, the Lee Valley Walks, an Art Sale and three sky dives. Thank you to everyone who contributed to these. A big thank you also to Tony Miller for the talk he did last Friday on ‘Sacred Mountains and Megalithic Tombs of the Lost Valley’ which raised €250. However most of the money so far has been raised through individual contributions to the fund. People have made donations of up to €8000.

Our deadline for our last installment of legal fees is the end of November and we still have €20,000 to raise. We currently selling tickets for a Grand Prize Draw which we are hoping will raise several thousand but again most of this final installment will need to come from individual contributions. We really need your help NOW. The five people who agreed to take the case forward to the high court need the ongoing support of the whole community. We all need to pull together to finish what we have started and honour the commitments we have made.If you've been considering giving, this is the time.
Tony did a fantastic job in his talk of reminding us just how important it is to protect our precious landscape and our ‘Sacred Mountains’ and of course our homes, community and way of life.
