Being there for the bereaved

The loss of a loved one is devastating. Unfortunately we are all likely to experience bereavement at some point in our lives. Grief can be isolating, lonely and confusing. But, with your help, we are working to ensure more bereaved people get the support they need.

In May, we hosted our first ever ‘Living with Loss’ evening for those grieving in Cork. The emotional evening saw former Cork hurler Dessie Fitzgerald
share his own journey through grief following the death of his two brothers.

Upcoming events:

  • Thursday, 14 November, Clayton Hotel, Galway

Thanks to you, there is more to come. We are currently preparing for our first ever ‘Living with Loss’ event in Galway on Thursday, 14 November in the Clayton Hotel. Radio presenter Meghann Scully will talk about dealing with the death of her brother and father in the space of two short years.

  • Thursday, 7 November, Alex Hotel, Dublin

Our annual ‘Living with Loss’ Dublin event is also set to take place on Thursday, 7 November at the Alex Hotel. Both events are free to attend, and will see a range of support services available to offer advice and information.
