Over 300 people attended the Walk of Remembrance in the University of Limerick Tuesday evening.

Students and non-students took part in the Walk and Moment of Silence to remember those who have died by suicide.

The Walk began at the Students’ Union in UL and went through the campus, over the Living Bridge, around the North Campus and Thomond Village and stopped at the fountains outside of the Schuman Building to light lanterns and pause for a moment of silence.

ULSU Sabbactical Welfare Officer, Roberta Harrington, said the event was, “a powerful display”.

“It was amazing to see so many people here. We all have our mental health. This is for remembering those we lost and to focus on mental health,” she added.
