    Elma & Fionnbar Walsh parents of Donal Walsh

    In Spring of this year, a Kerry teenager came to national prominence because of an article he had written for Kerry's Eye, asking his peers to consider any path other than suicide. Donal Walsh was 16 years old & was suffering from terminal cancer. Donal's outspoken appeal to vulnerable young people to say no to suicide inspired the nation.

    Last Friday Miriam met Donal Walsh’s parents Elma and Fionnbarr in their home in Blennerville, just outside Tralee. Since his passing, anonymous visits to his grave have been made by friends and strangers alike to pay their respects to him.
