Local events organised to mark World Suicide Prevention Day

Locals are remembering their loved ones today on World Suicide Prevention Day.

A seminar is taking place in Kilkenny to look at the role of local action plans against suicide and later a candle ceremony will take place in St Marys Cathederal in the city.

While in Carlow you’re being asked to come out and release a balloon in the town park from 8pm tonight.
