The 16-year old from Blennerville came to national prominence when he made a plea for young people not to consider suicide – he at the time was battling cancer.

Dónal passed away in May 2013.

The #LiveLife Foundation, established in Donal’s memory, will oversee today’s sponsored event.

The climb commences at 11am at Baile Breac on the Dingle side of Mount Brandon.
