Portlaoise student Curtis Walsh wowed over 7,000 people in the 3Arena yesterday.
Curtis was one of the performers for the Cycle Against Suicide event.
Host of Laois representatives
Curtis wasn’t the only student representing Laois at the event. Sarah Keenan from Coláiste Íosagáin was one of just 13 student leaders from all over Ireland for Cycle Against Suicide.
Other special guests on the night included Galway hurlers Jason Flynn and Davy Glennon, phenomenal blind athlete Sinead Kane, doctor Eddie Murphy and young musician Kayleigh Cullinan.
The main message behind the Cycle Against Suicide is, “It’s OK not to feel OK, and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help.”
Cycle Against Suicide started 5 years ago to raise awareness of the help and supports that are available for anyone battling depression, self harm, at risk of suicide or those bereaved by suicide.
The main cycle takes place each year in April/May every year.
