Galway, Galway Ireland (PressExposure) September 09, 2009 -- Statistics can tell us how many people take their own lives in any given year. They can outline the age profile, gender balance, geographical spread, educational background and many other details about the hundreds and men and women who make that ultimate final choice.
But statistics can never measure the pain, anguish and sadness felt by the families and friends of those who commit suicide. To help ease that pain and to celebrate the lives of those lost to suicide, Turning the Tide of Suicide (3Ts) runs a simple candlelight ceremony to coincide with World Suicide Prevention Day every year.
3T's is a registered charity founded to raise awareness of the problem of suicide in Ireland and to raise funds to help lower suicide rates through dedicated research, educational support and intervention.
The West of Ireland Candlelight Remembrance Service will take place in St Nicholasâ Collegiate Church, Galway on Friday September 10th at 8pm. This evening has proved to be a very healing and comforting experience for all who attended in the past.
Admission is free and refreshments are served after the ceremony.
Friday September 11th 8 â 9.30pm St Nicholasâ Collegiate Church, Galway
