SUMMIT FOR ONE – SUMMIT FOR ALL
Transition Year (TY) student Marcas O’Raghallaigh, from Mount Temple Comprehensive School in Dublin, was impressed by ONE’s cause, and by the dedication and sacrifices of Defence Forces members at home, abroad with the United Nations.
Marcus with a team of six students, two teachers, and two veterans will summit Carrauntoohil, the highest mountain in Ireland, to raise money for ONE, a charity that supports Irish Defence Forces veterans. Our summit journey is planned for 25th February 2022, with all funds raised going to support the goals of ONE.

The ONE Veterans Charity offers Defence Forces veterans housing and support, with the ultimate goal of accessing permanent accommodation, improving mental health and preventing future homelessness. Headquartered in Smithfield, Dublin 7, the charity runs 37 branches across Ireland, along with 15 support centres and 4 Veterans Hostels in Cobh, Dublin, Athlone and Letterkenny, with a fifth being planned for Cork City. ONE provides 20,000 beds annually, has kept 1,000 veterans off the streets and 90% of veterans go on to have permanent housing. For more information, please visit www.one-veterans.org
