About the Library
The Irish Hospice Foundation’s Library and Information service was launched in 2003 as a core element of the Bereavement education function of the Irish Hospice Foundation.
The Thérèse Brady Library has a specialist focus on bereavement but also includes other subject areas of interest to the hospice and palliative care community. The Library is named after Thérèse Brady, Director of Postgraduate Training in Clinical Psychology at UCD who developed the Irish Hospice Foundation Bereavement Services in the late 1980s. On her death, Therese’s books on bereavement theory were donated to the Irish Hospice Foundation and the library was developed around this core collection.
