Greystones woman Christina Clarkin was one of many people who took part in the last ever abseil of Plunkett Tower.
A total of 106 people took part in the fundraiser raising over €3,000 for the Trinity Comprehensive School in Ballymun.
Trinity Comprehensive is one of 21 schools throughout the country who have adopted the Wriggle 1:1 mobile learning programme this year, using mobile devices and digital textbooks in place of traditional textbooks. 16 first year students at Trinity Comprehensive started secondary school with a lighter 'digital' schoolbag in September 2012 as part of the school's scholarship and academic programme. Wriggle supports the initiative at the school through product sponsorship, co-funding the student iPads. The abseil was hosted by Carlingford Adventure Centre, based in Co. Louth.
