In total, eight people went into the river over the course of a week. Five drowned and three were saved.
Three of the men died in the same weekend, entering the river within a hundred feet of each other.
The deaths sparked the biggest search and rescue operation ever mounted in the area, led by a small volunteer search group, based in the town.
This documentary relives that tragic eight-day period and explores the revived push to combat suicide across Wexford in the last few years.
We hear from the families of the men who died in 2002 and the volunteers who helped retrieve their bodies.
Narrated and Produced by Aoife Kavanagh
