Kerry teenager Donal Walsh has died after losing his battle with cancer.
He passed away at his home in Blennerville, County Kerry, surrounded by his dad Fionnbar, his mother Elma and his sister Jemma.
Donal, aged 16, had publicly appealed to young people not to end their lives. He wrote a letter which brought him to national prominence.
He had been battling cancer since he was first diagnosed four years ago, and had raised over €50,000 for charity.
Weeks before his death, Donal recorded a video message to be circulated in schools.
Fr Francis Nolan, parish priest of St. John's in Tralee, was with Donal Walsh's family in the hours after his death
Minister of State for Mental Health Kathleen Lynch paid tribute to Donal's 'generosity of spirit'
