The most recent official figures produced by the CSO indicate that there were 495 deaths by suicide in Ireland in 2010. This figure is below the profile for most EU countries yet the figures for young men are particularly high by international comparison. The identification of comparable overall trends is difficult given the time-lags in the confirmation of official data and requires on-going analysis.

The most recent confirmed data for 2010, taken together with figures from the National Register of Deliberate Self-Harm, would suggest a stabilisation in the rates of suicidal behaviour. Yet, suicide rates remain too high and a community wide effort is required to reduce suicide rates.
