Mini Pole 2 Peak

Pole Dancing in the mountains! .. Pole enthusiasts gathered together from all over Ireland on Sunday 4th Sept to climb the Slieve Donard , the highest mountain in Northern Ireland and in 9-county Ulster.

The mountain is normally a relatively easy climb although braving the extreme weather conditions on the day and carrying up an 11’ pole to dance on at the top would prove a little more challenging.

The group are the first known to have pole danced on a mountain in Ireland and rather than making their mark and planting a traditional flag, instead they performed the ‘human flag’ at the highest peak of Northern Ireland and enjoyed the spectacular views of the coast and as far afield as Belfast, 30 miles north, and Dublin, 55 miles to the south.

The event was organised by local lady, owner of Polercise Ltd El Fegan to help raise money and in preparation for her Charity climb of Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro, next March in aid of the Pole Sports Benevolent Fund, when a group of 30 pole enthusiasts from all over the world will meet to pole dance on its peak!

There will be a Mini Pole 2 Peak Pt 2 on October 15th in the Wiclow mountains – If you would like to join us please keep this date free – more details to follow
