<< All Resources

Ronan Hughes, a 17-year-old from Co Tyrone, Northern Ireland killed himself after being blackmailed into posting pictures of himself online.

At his funeral, parish priest Fr Benny Fee told mourners “He did not take his own life. His life was taken by these faceless people who put the child into a burning building that he felt he could not escape”.

Ronan, a talented goalkeeper with the Clonoe O’Rahilly’s gaelic football club, and a student at St Joseph’s Grammar in Donaghmorehad, told his parents about the bullying and they went to the police, but unfortunately that did not help.
