Cycle Against Suicide Group visits Coláiste Phobal

It’s OK not to feel OK and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help. This powerful message was delivered by Jim Breen himself last Tuesday morning in Coláiste Phobal Roscrea’s gym. Transition Year, 5th year and 6th year groups were the captive audience for Jim’s talk. He was introduced by Aine and J.P and some of our incredibly talented Ceoltas players. Using anecdotes and some willing staff participants Jim delivered his powerful message to a captivated audience. Cycle against suicide will be arriving back at Coláiste on May Bank Holiday weekend but more information will be available nearer to the time.
