In the past, Sean Flood has abseiled off of GAA headquarters for ISPCC Childline, and he's excited to zip line this year.

A Dublin man will be flying through the air at over 100mph, and he’s doing it for charity.

On Saturday, April 21, 100 people will take on the world’s fastest zip line in support of national child protection charity, the ISPCC, including Clongriffin-native Sean Flood.

“I can’t wait for the Zip Line Challenge because I’m a bit of an adrenaline junkie, and this is right up my street,” said Sean.

“From people I have spoken to who have already completed zip line challenges, I believe it feels like flying.”

Participants of ISPCC’s #ReadyToFly Challenge will be travelling to Holyhead, Wales where they will warm up with Little Zipper and then go down Velocity, the world’s fastest zip line.

By participating in the challenge, adventurers will be raising funds for the ISPCC.

Each participant has a fundraising goal of €650, which will go towards ISPCC services like Childline, a 24-hour free, confidential listening service for children and youth.

“I have done bungee jumps, skydived and abseiled off the back of the scoreboard in Croke Park for Childline last year, so I’m excited to try out the fastest zip line in the world. I’d encourage anyone to give this a go—I’ve already been encouraging colleagues and friends to come along with me,” Flood said.

More information on the event and how to register is available on ISPCC’s website.
