The Reflection Book

As part of our commitment to the process of Reflection, Remembrance and Renewal, we created this book of Reflection in the summer of 2021. 

Interviews with care workers and the staff of bereavement focused charities by the journalist Róisín Ingle are interspersed with the work of Irish poets 

It is our earliest reflection on all losses during the pandemic. It has a particular focus on the impact on the health and wellbeing of carers. 

This compliments a larger and longer piece of research and reflection initiated by IHF.

We offer it as a gift.
