Press Release 05/09/2013 >>

.........................................................................................

Central Statistics Office provisional data for 2010, by year of registration, shows a total of 486 deaths by suicide of which 386 were male and 100 female. This is a decrease of 41 (8%) on the record high in 2009 of 527 suicides.

Whilst this reduction is welcome it must be remembered that these are only provisional figures which usually rise when full year of occurrence data is released. CSO data will be closely monitored and all of our efforts will continue to ensure that the suicide figures show a consistent downward trend.
