Dear Editor,

Dear Editor,

Sunday Game presenter Michael Lyster has been joined by motor neurone disease (MND) sufferer Paul Lannon and Clonmel native Evan Farrell to encourage others from across Ireland to abseil 100ft off the Hogan Stand in Croke Park in aid of the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA).

Paul who is 43 and from Co Louth was as diagnosed with MND in 2011. It takes a lot of courage to live with MND and Paul wants people to have a little courage and take that leap of faith on Saturday, October 12 to raise funds and awareness for people with motor neurone disease. Tipp supporter Evan is only too delighted to take part. Michael Lyster, good friend to the late Colm Murray, wants people to support a cause close to his heart. If you would like the chance to wear your county colours in Croke Park and take part in this unique challenge please freefone 1800 403 403 or email
