Download our CD and help prevent suicide



Last month I recorded a charity CD with other Senators and TDs.

Our version of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” was produced to raise funds for Pieta House and to highlight the growing problem of self-harm and death by suicide.

Pieta House provides an invaluable service for people contemplating taking their own life or self-harming, providing a face to face, free of charge, therapeutic service for people in the acute stages of distress. The cost of running the service is now €1.3 million annually, of which just €240,000 is covered by HSE funding.

You can support this work by downloading the song from iTunes. It costs just €1.29. Just search for ‘Pieta House’ on iTunes.

The number of people dying by suicide in Ireland each year is on the rise. In 2010, 486 took their own lives, leaving devastated families and friends struggling to cope with the impact of their loss.

Your donation will help Pieta House to assist people at risk and help them find a way to overcome their problems without harming themselves.

Note: The other Oireachtas members featured on the song are Michael Kitt TD FF, Robert Troy TD FF, Derek Keating TD FG, Finian McGrath TD Indep, Lucinda Creighton FG Minister, Michael Ring FG Minister, Jon Burton FG Minister, Simon Coveney FG Minister, Regina Doherty FG TD, Stephen Donnelly TD Indep, Terence Flanagan TD FG, Peter Matthews TD FG, Padraig Mac Lochlainn TD SF, Mick Wallace TD Ind, Senator Lorraine Higgins Lab and Frank Feighan TD FG.
