This project examined how the Irish print media reports suicide. The quantitative research captured newspaper articles on suicide, classified & catalogued these under a number of headings, & analysed the data produced by this process. The qualitative approach involved the close reading of samples of the items collected with a view to understanding the social & cultural messages they impart. From the original pilot test period a set of hypotheses regarding the treatment of suicide in the press were developed; these are discussed in the final part of this report.
