Over 1400 teenagers from all over the midlands gathered at Charleville Castle in Tullamore last Friday for the second annual Teen Aware event, the purpose of which is to create awareness of teen suicides and the support services available.

Over 1400 teenagers from all over the midlands gathered at Charleville Castle in Tullamore last Friday for the second annual Teen Aware event, the purpose of which is to create awareness of teen suicides and the support services available.

What began as a Transition Year project in 2011 at the local Sacred Heart Secondary school has developed into a fully fledged music festival and an opportunity for support organisations to directly connect with teenagers. This year the Road Safety Authority also became involved to highlight the importance of safe driving.

Sacred Heart School teacher Sean McFadden, who was one of the adult co-ordinaters of Teen Aware, along with Bruce McCormack, Corrine Conannon and Richie Penrose, said they were delighted with the response of all the participants from the performers to the support organisations.
