Kilkenny artist Marley Irish has donated a sunflower painting worth over €2000 entitled 'Sunflower Glory' to Derek Devoy to raise funds for Taxi Watch.

All proceeds will go to Taxiwatch Suicide Prevention Training, which is now a TalkToTom Gorey Initiative.

Talk To Tom teaches taxi professionals how to spot the signs of a person suffering through a suicide crisis, how to react, and how to get the person to safety.

This painting will be auctioned in the coming weeks.

If you would like more information or if you wish to put in an early bid you can call Derek on 087 6665050. 

Taxi Watch is a completely volunteer-driven organisation, run by the community for the community.
