Donal’s message is to cherish life and live life. That is the theme of the day. This day event is being offered to students in Transition Year, 5th Year, Year 11 and Year 12 from all over Ireland. The day promises to be an inspiring experience and a chance for students to come together from across Ireland at the end of the academic year, kick start the summer and reflect on what it means to Live Life!!
Donal Walsh #Livelife Foundation
Donal Walsh was from county Kerry. He touched so many lives when he came to prominence through his writings and subsequent appearance on Brendan O’Connor’s ‘The Saturday Night Show’ on RTÉ Television. Donal who fund raised tirelessly while battling cancer has now had the Donal Walsh #Livelife Foundation set up by his family primarily in order to promote his anti-suicide #Livelife message.
