Story


Paul Gosney is taking up a unique challenge starting on the 4th of July, Paul will attempt Irelands Longest Triathlon:
19km swim in the pool
900km cycle (That's 5 Ring of Kerrys!!)
210km run (That's 5 marathons)


I'm doing this to raise funds and awareness for Pieta House, which is a charity close to my heart. They do incredible work.



About Pieta House

In 2006, Pieta House opened its doors in Lucan, County Dublin and since that day we have seen and helped over 30,000 people in suicidal distress or engaging in self-harm, and established twelve subsequent centres across Ireland.

From humble beginnings, Pieta House has grown to almost 270 therapists and administration staff, and the demand for our service hasn’t let up. In 2016 alone, almost 6,000 people came through our doors suffering from suicidal ideation and/or engaging in self-harm, or to avail of suicide bereavement counselling.

 

As it has been from day one, everything is free of charge and our staff are fully qualified and provide a professional one-to-one therapeutic service for people who are experiencing suicidal ideation, people who have attempted suicide and people who are engaging in self-harm. A doctor’s referral or a psychiatric report is not required.

We’re passionate about our life-saving work. As 90% of our income comes from fundraising events, we rely heavily on the support and encouragement of our volunteers and friends of Pieta.
