Now their ambassadors for their latest 'SIGNS of Suicide' campaign, singer Aaron J Hart and fitness influencer Nathalie Lennon are helping the charity to get their message out there. The charity says that is why it is now more important than ever that people are mindful of the ‘SIGNS of Suicide’ and know what to look out for in loved ones. Talking to loved ones about emotions is a difficult, but important, first step and can help alleviate distress before things spiral or escalate. "If someone you know is struggling, remember to follow the three simple steps of A.P.R - Ask, Persuade, Refer. Doing so could help save your loved one’s life.”Aaron J Harte, ‘SIGNS of Suicide’ ambassador, said: “I am proud to be an ambassador for Pieta’s ‘SIGNS of Suicide’ campaign again this year.
Caoimhín Kelleher last night set a sensational record in his side's dramatic Carabao Cup victory on penalties over Derby, becoming the first Reds goalkeeper to win four shoot-outs. And after a marathon 22 penalty shoot-out - which included Kelleher saving a spot kick from his fellow Corkman Conor Hourihane - Reds manager Jurgen Klopp had just one word for his keeper; "WOW!" Kelleher is now, indisputably, Liverpool's greatest-ever penalty shoot-out king having already held the record for winning three shoot-outs in a Reds shirt, his first coming in the Reds' Carabao Cup fourth-round win over Arsenal in 2019. Kelleher next won a penalty shoot-out in the Carabao Cup semi-final last season when Liverpool overcame Leicester City before the Corkman was called into action again in the final at Wembley. In winning his fourth shoot-out for Liverpool, Kelleher has bettered his already impressive record after only 18 appearances in a Reds shirt.2 months ago Cork Beo

These will carry an enhanced penalty and the criminal record will clearly state that the offence was a hate crime. However, Minister McEntee said that hate speech is not about free speech – hate speech is designed to shut people down, to shut them up, to make them afraid to say who they are and to exclude and isolate them. This Bill provides separately for hate crime and for hate speech, but on the basis of the same protected characteristics. The need for new legislation to address hate speech and hate crime has been recognised for many years. However, the Minister McEntee concluded that motivation alone in proving hate crime offences can be difficult to establish and therefore might not result in a conviction.3 months ago Cork Safety Alerts
