Liffey suicide is latest victim of abuse to die

One in Four

Irish Independent

A MAN who died after jumping into the Liffey in Dublin this week was the latest survivor of institutional abuse to have taken his own life.

Anthony Delaney is thought to have thrown himself into the river at the city's quays at noon on Tuesday after emerging from a nearby solicitors' offices.

Mr Delaney was among the former inmate of residential institutions whose cases have been dealt with by the Government-appointed Residential Institutions Redress Board.
