Thurles Lions Club Suicide Awareness Programme

Extract from a poem by Misao Fujimura.

“To end is to start; to surrender is to know,
Despair and depression, together they grow,
Hope shall meet hopeless, when there’s nowhere to go.” 

Ann Marie Brophy, Executive Librarian at Thurles Library Reports:
Thurles Lions Club are holding a suicide awareness programme on Saturday January 18th, 2014.

This awareness programme will begin at 10:00 a.m., in the Tipperary Centre for IndHSEependent Living.

Latter building, as most of you will know, is situated to the rear of the once Stradavoher Industrial Estate, in Thurles, Co Tipperary.

This is a four hour programme, fully facilitated by the HSE, during which time qualified personnel will attempt to train people in being more suicide aware.

“This is a free programme and I think this is of particular interest to any of us who work with the public on a day to day basis.”

If you are interested in attending, just let Ann Marie know by email to or by Tel: 087-6853936.

Ann Marie would also greatly appreciate if you could also spread the word about this upcoming informative programme, either by word of mouth or by perhaps ‘Sharing’ on Facebook.
