WATCH: Hundreds walk from darkness into light in Cookstown

An “inspirational” event to raise awareness of suicide and self-harm has seen hundreds of people gather in Cookstown to send a loud and public message of support to all those suffering emotional distress.

The event was organised in aid of Pieta House, supported by the Niamh Louise Foundation, and was a huge success last weekend.
