Today, Ali Hewson among others will be abseiling down Cork City’s own The Elysian, Ireland’s tallest building at 272-feet (17 stories). Hewson is on the board of Chernobyl Children’s Project International (CCPI) and she is also married to U2’s lead singer Bono. The event at The Elysian is to raise funds for and awareness of CCPI. According to CCPI’s website, she is joined by 50 students from the Garda College Templemore who planned the fundraiser. There is a great photo from the top on the Irish Independent website.
