Danielle Carroll, from Tallaght, Dublin, who took her own life in a Co Kildare hotel.
The sister of a young mother who took her own life last year has described the devastating impact homelessness had had on her sibling’s mental health.
Caroline Carroll, speaking at the inaugural Danielle Carroll Summer School in Dublin on Saturday, read from a letter Danielle had written to the local authority days before her death, saying how she didn’t want to “break [her children’s] hearts anymore”. Her two sons, DJ and Carter, were aged seven and 20 months at the time of her death.
