Fionnbar Walsh (#Livelife Foundation) Visits Coolmine
On 19th October 2015, Fionnbar Walsh, father of Donal Walsh visited and spoke with some of our senior students.
Donal touched so many lives when he came to prominence through his writings and subsequent appearance on Brendan O’Connor’s ‘The Saturday Night Show’. While battling cancer, Donal fund raised tirelessly to support teenage cancer patients and to prevent teenage suicide. His family have now set up the Donal Walsh #Livelife Foundation to promote his anti-suicide message.
Fionnbar took the opportunity to meet with class ‘1 Walsh’ and tell them of Donal’s wish that young people think and talk about how good life is and focus on the positives rather than the negatives.
