About the Therese Brady Library & Information Service
The Irish Hospice Foundation’s Library and Information service was opened in 2003 and is central to the Bereavement Information and Education functions of the Irish Hospice Foundation.
The Thérèse Brady Library is the only dedicated specialist library in the country focusing on bereavement, palliative care and end-of-life issues. 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.
