Padraig lost his life to suicide on the 15th May 2015. He was just 24 years old. Padraig was a kind and generous person, whose trenchant wit and easy charm touched the lives of everyone who knew him. This year, in order to honour the memory of our dear friend in advance of the two-year anniversary of his death, we will be taking part in ‘Darkness Into Light’ for Pieta House.
Pieta House is Ireland’s most recognizable and respected charities. Since opening its doors in 2006, the service has helped thousands of people overcome suicidal ideation, those who have been bereaved by suicide, and people who are engaging in self-harm. In 2015 alone, in excess of 5,000 people received acute care in one of the charity’s 8 centres nationwide.
The Darkness into Light walk generates nearly half of the funding needed to keep the doors open, and with your help and support Pieta House can respond better and faster to those in desperate need.
Please Help us to ensure that the tragedy loss of life to suicide is prevented, and that others like Padraig can be brought from darkness into light.
