A Day That Will Never Be Forgotten – St Joseph’s College Borrisoleigh Cycle Against Suicide

On Tuesday 3rd of May, St. Joseph’s College Borrisoleigh were proud to be an anchor school for the Cycle Against Suicide, a charity organisation which promotes positive mental health and wellbeing. At around 1 o’clock cyclists from all over Ireland arrived in our school from their previous stop in Roscrea. They were amply watered and fed by a wonderful selection of food generously provided and prepared by local businesses, parents, students and staff. Entertainment was provided on the day by the school’s A Day That Will Never Be Forgotten - St Joseph's College Borrisoleigh Cycle Against Suicide music classes and the hall was fabulously decorated by the art students. As well as Jim Breen ( founder of CAS) speakers included Marcus Horan, past pupils Paddy Stapleton and Seamus Callanan, Anna Geary (camogie player and TV personality). Emotional stories and songs were shared but there was much fun, laughter and dancing also! Jim Breen reminded the students that when times got tough and everything was getting on top of them to “remember this moment, feel the love and positive energy in the room and know that the people around them would listen to them and support them in times of trouble”. It was a day we will never forget!
