To mark International Overdose Awareness Day 2021, Ana Liffey Drug Project will unveil a prominent mural in Limerick City Centre which draws attention to the drug Naloxone – a prescription medication which can reverse a heroin overdose. Ana Liffey’s Team Leader Rachel O’Donoghue said:
“Our team work hard to get Naloxone into the hands of people who can save lives if they come across an overdose. In the Midwest, people who use drugs and their family members are often the first responders to an overdose. Many are trained to respond to overdose and save lives. We want to celebrate them. We also want to say thank you to Paul and the team at Canteen for partnering with us to display this wonderful mural on their building.”
