category wicklow | miscellaneous | press release author Monday February 13, 2012 20:23author by Nora Hegarty - Wicklow Against Suicideauthor email wicklowagainsuicide at live dot ie Report this post to the editors

Wicklow Against Suicide is fully supporting, endorsing and helping in the organisation of a gig to raise funds for suicide prevention which is being put together by local man Shane Rowan on March 2nd in the Royal Hotel Bray. "The gig is in direct response to Wicklow's rising suicide rate which is now out of all known control."

Speaking this week in a personal capacity founder of the organisation Wayne Flanagan Tobin said:

"The gig co-incides with our fourth year in existance and all members past and present were emailed and have expressed their full support for the gig. It is hoped this gig will re-ignite and unite the fight against suicide in the county and beyond. We would like to thank all those who have helped in the background over the past few years".

Paul Leahy, also a founding member expressed his support:

"I have been involved in community activites for most of my life which has been formally acknowledged at county level. As the suicide rate continues to rise according to the latest statistics, I strongly welcome this gig to raise funds for suicide prevention measures and awareness".

Organiser of the gig Mr. Shane Rowan said:

"I very much welcome local suicide groups coming behind this initiative and am only too aware of the damage suicide can cause and the consequences of its aftermath. I am delighted to have the support of Wicklow Agaist Suicide, which includes the victims of suicide and those left behind. I will be organising another gig in Wicklow Town in the near future"

It is hoped Chairman of the group John Curran will address the gig on the night.

Ends.
