The North Dublin Bereavement Network are hosting a free online Bereavement Information evening in March for people bereaved through any circumstance, whether it be an illness or sudden death. You may have lost a partner, a parent, a child, a friend, a sibling, a relative or a work colleague. The event will provide information about grief and the range of bereavement supports available in the local area.  


Niamh Finucane, Coordinator of Social Work & Bereavement Service at St Francis Hospice Dublin, will talk about the process of grief and the ways we can support each other. This year’s event will also focus on coping with significant events and anniversaries after the death of someone close.  

Niamh Fitzpatrick will host our Q&A panel. Author and psychologist, Niamh experienced the sudden death of her sister, Capt. Dara Fitzpatrick, during an Irish Coast Guard Rescue operation in 2017. A number of our network members will be on the panel, some of whom will talk about their own experience of grief and loss. Read more about Niamh
