Eir to launch cyber-bullying information leaflet in memory of Nicole Fox
Mobile network Eir is set to launch a new anti-bullying initiative in memory of Dublin girl Nicole Fox.
Nicole, also known as Coco, took her own life last year after being bullied in person and online for years.
Her mum Jackie is now fighting to make sure what happened to her daughter does not happen to anyone else.
Ms Fox made an emotional appeal to the Dail to bring in new legislation called 'Coco's Law' which would make it illegal to bully a person online.
Jackie told those present about the harrowing day that she and her teenage son discovered her daughter Nicole hanging from the bannisters in their home.
The heartbroken mum described how she tried to keep her daughter alive;
I dialled the ambulance and put it on speaker while I'm doing CPR and at the same time I'm rubbing her face and I'm begging her to hold on."
Unfortunately, Nicole tragically passed away aged only 21.
Recently Eir announced that they will be including a leaflet containing Nicole's story and anti-bullying information with every new phone bought.
It will be launched on Safer Internet Day 2019, February 5.
While Nicole's family are happy that these information leaflets will be given out in her memory but they still hope to go further in their campaign to stamp out cyber-bullying for good.
