OLM Matterhorn Fundraising Challenge

Our Lady of Mercy Secondary School (OLM) has been serving the young people of Dublin 12 and surrounding areas for a number of decades. It is a DEIS (Delivering Equality In Standards) school, striving to Shape a Brighter Future for Young People in an area which was hit particularly badly by the economic recession. Along with savage cutbacks in public spending on education, this has left the school in a very bad state.

OLM is in need of extensive refurbishment work as well as upgrading of essential educational equipment if we are to truly Deliver Equality In Educational Standards. We believe that equal access to education is a right, not a privilege reserved for others.

We cannot do this alone. We need your help to ensure that this and future generations of young people from Dublin 12 and surrounding areas are afforded the same opportunities as other young people.

Principal of OLM Pádhraic Gibbons is going to climb the Matterhorn in July 2018 to raise vital funds for the project. The Matterhorn is a 2-day challenge and the summit attempt is an 8-12 hour vertical climb and descent to 4478m (14,692ft) including a knife-edge ridge to the summit.

In preparation for his challenge, Pádhraic started training on 1st March. He will post photos and videos of his preparation and the reality of the state of the school over the next few months as he builds up to the Matterhorn attempt.

Please support us in our quest of Shaping a Brighter Future for Our Young People by sharing this page and by donating as much as you can.

From all of us in OLM, thank you.




Phil and Dani

Well done!
