    Hi,

    I'm not sure if you are the person I need to be contacting about this, but I am hoping you could help me or point me in the right direction as to who to talk to in relation to this matter.

    My name is Paula Davis, I live in a small down on the east coast of Ireland.

    Just over a month ago, a young man from Arklow went missing. His name is James Sheehan. James went missing after a night out in the town. His friends noticed on the Sunday that James hadn't contacted anyone so raised the alarm. James was part of a local football team, Arklow Celtic.

Hi,

I'm not sure if you are the person I need to be contacting about this, but I am hoping you could help me or point me in the right direction as to who to talk to in relation to this matter.

My name is Paula Davis, I live in a small down on the east coast of Ireland.

Just over a month ago, a young man from Arklow went missing. His name is James Sheehan. James went missing after a night out in the town. His friends noticed on the Sunday that James hadn't contacted anyone so raised the alarm. James was part of a local football team, Arklow Celtic. All the guys that play in the club are the closet group of friends I have ever seen. So when the guys heard that James was missing they quickly got together to find him.

The whole town of Arklow came out in force to support the family and friends of James to help find him. It turned out in the end that he had fallen into the river ad drowned. It was a very sad week for the town and everyone involved. If you have the time to google his name you will see all the coverage and support that came of it.

The reason I am writing to you is that Whistle was one of his favorite songs and has quickly become nearly an anthem and has been played everyday since he went missing a hundred times a day. It was even whistled at his funeral when he was buried. It is also played every weekend in the local club still as a tribute to him.

I was hoping that maybe if possible someone could arrange a picture or something with an autograph or something on it in memory of James. I would like to thank you for your time for reading this mail and hope to hear from you soon.
