Suicide Prevention Week- 3T’s Candlelight Vigils


Approximately 600 people die by suicide annually in Ireland. It is a tragedy that devastates families and touches every community. Everybody knows somebody and so many loved somebody.
Once again, 3Ts are planning Candlelight Vigils in Dublin, Galway and Wexford to mark World Suicide Prevention Week.  We are asking all our supporters to attend and to tell a friend.

 This is the 6th year that the 3Ts have held Candlelight Vigils to mark World Suicide Prevention Week. These events are for all who have lost family, friends and colleagues through suicide, to gather, to light a candle and to honour and remember lost loved ones.   They also serve to highlight the support of the wider community with special guest speakers, music and a minute’s silence.

The Vigils are very moving occasions and I think that everyone who attends one finds it a very worthwhile experience.  We are asking our supporters to let as many people as you can know about our Vigils.  Tell your friends and family – post a link to this page on your Facebook.  We appreciate anything you can do to help us get word out.
