Kenny and Coghlan on their bikes for suicide charity

RTE'S Pat Kenny took to the road over the weekend to support a suicide charity.

The TV presenter led around 50 people, including Olympic medallist Eamonn Coghlan and Lord Mayor Andrew Montague, on a two-hour cycle in aid of Console.

The group set out from Grand Canal Dock and cycled to the 12th lock at Lucan.

Statistics released last week showed that 95 people died by suicide in the first three months of the year.

The majority of those who died were men were aged between 15 and 45. Female deaths by suicide totalled 13 -- two of whom were under 24.
