Priest: Family in 'a very black place'


Community and health groups in west Belfast have met in response to the deaths of two young children who took their own lives in neighbouring housing estates.

Martin Rooney, 13, and 11-year-old Ciara Doherty died in unconnected incidents at their homes in Twinbrook and Mount Eagles.

Father John Forsythe has visited the Doherty family and said they were in a "very black place".

He was speaking to Talkback's Wendy Austin.
