Speaking in Seanad Éireann Senator Labhrás Ó Murchú requested that every consideration be given to the ever increasing problem of suicides in Ireland. 

“There is now more than one suicide each week and the numbers are increasing at a rapid rate. It is a matter of urgency to endeavour to find the reason for this terrible tragedy which affects so many families. We must also do everything in our power to help the victim’s families (and communities) in every way possible.”
