A powerful exploration into the hidden world of male suicide in Ireland.
By Phil Mac Giolla Bhain
Introduction by John Waters
This timely book explores the appalling death toll of young Irishmen over a twenty-year period.
Campaigning journalist Phil Mac Giolla Bhain travelled the length and breadth of the island of Ireland hearing the stories of heart broken families who have been devastated by suicide.
Phil also spoke to experts in the field who, despite years of research, cannot answer why the suicide rate among our young men is so high.
Finally, Phil develops an analysis why this is a killer of men and not women in modern Ireland and what can be done to neutralise this “tolerated serial killer”.
The proceeds from this book will be donated to the “Lets Get Together Foundation.”(LGTF).
The LGTF is a community based suicide prevention initiative in County Cork formed by people bereaved by suicide.
