Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons has unveiled a special memorial in Waterville this afternoon dedicated to those who have lost their lives and those affected by suicide.
The memorial and plaque are the idea of Cahersiveen resident Peter Holthusen who says he was shocked by the number of people who’ve died by suicide.
Mr Irons was invited to be part of the ceremony at Tech Amergin Community Gardens.
He says he’s happy that suicide is now an issue that more people are talking about.
If this is an issue that you’re affected by, you can contact the Samaritans any time by calling 116 123.
