Photographs of the Poster Launch night with the parents of Donal Walsh, namely Finnbar and Alma Walsh from Tralee Co Kerry who launched our poster campaign on Monday the 2nd of December 2013. 32 different Organisations were represented at the launch which was fully supported by the GAA, IFA , Teagasc, Community Alert, IRFU and IFA.
A crowd of 300 people attended the event and the Walsh’s gave a video presentation of their son Donal who made an impassioned plea for people to be positive about life and not to consider taking their own lives. Fr Declan McInerney and Reverend George Flynn lit candles and gave a blessing in a light of hope memorial for those lost through Suicide and for Donal Walsh and his parents. GELS made a presentation to Alma and Fionnbar Walsh and thanked them for their work in the heightening of awareness and prevention of Suicide.
