Memorial for tragic Coleraine man Zachary Geddis

A wishing well has been lovingly unveiled at the Angel of Hope Memorial Garden in Coleraine in memory of a young local man who died suddenly last year.

Zachary Geddis took his own life in March 2017, causing devastation.

His family created the Zachary Geddis Break the Silence Trust in his memory, which aims to bring more awareness to mental illness within Northern Ireland and decrease the stigma surrounding suicide.

Father Sheehan, from St Malachy's Parish in Coleraine, was among those who attended on Saturday, and said a special prayer at the opening.

Zachary's family described it as a special day, and said that after the event they went together to get one of his favourite treats, an ice cream, in his memory.
