Singer-songwriter Lisa O'Neill and Stones in His Pockets writer Marie Jones have signed up for a tandem skydive as part of First Freefall - and you can take part too.

First Freefall is "an event aimed at highlighting anxiety disorders and the need for better attitudes to mental health".

The brainchild of the organisers of Ireland's only mental health arts festival First Fortnight, First Freefall will take place on Saturday September 13, with Mayo GAA star Rob Hennelly also confirmed to take part.

Members of the public can sign up for the skydive at: firstfortnight.ie/firstfreefall.

Funds raised will go towards First Fortnight's Centre for Creative Therapies, which helps those experiencing homelessness and mental health issues in Dublin.

First Fortnight 2015 will take place in Dublin in January.
