BUILDINGS across three major cities are set to be lit up with images of teenager Noah Donohoe.

Pictures of the teen, whose body was found in a north Belfast storm drain on June 26, will be projected onto landmarks across London, Dublin and Belfast.

The touching tribute has been organised by supporters of the ‘My Noah’ campaign, a drive by his family to find unanswered questions surrounding his death.

“On Dublin on Saturday night buildings will be lit up including the city hall, St James Gate and the GPO, and on Sunday, at around the same time that Noah left his house, we are going to light up some iconic buildings and some locations in Belfast to remember Noah,” one of the organisers, Steven, said.

“There will be a meaning behind each building lit up in Belfast, including Belfast Castle which is at the foothill of where Noah was going that day to meet his friends.

“There are also plans to light up landmarks in London, possibly the Marble Arch, subject to lockdown restrictions, with a picture of Noah.

“The businessman who will be projecting the images has offered his services free of charge, which shows the feeling by all those who want to support Fiona and her family.

“This is all about remembering Noah and raising awareness of the family’s campaign. We want Noah’s light to shine all over the UK and Ireland.”


The support follows similar backing of the Donohoe family’s remembrance campaign from a host of celebrities including world boxing champs David Haye and Carl Frampton.

Murals and messages of support for the Donohoe campaign have appeared across Belfast since the 14-year-old’s tragic death.

Many public representatives have also publicly offered their support.

In September, Derry City and Strabane District council passed a notice of motion calling on the Police Ombudsman to investigate the PSNI handling of the Noah Donohoe case.

An online petition calling for an Ombudsman probe has received over 49,000 signatures.
