Rosabel’s Rooms was established by parents Suzanne McClean and Gary Monroe in memory of their beloved daughter Rosabel Monroe, who died suddenly and unexpectedly in April 2017, aged sixteen months.
Rosabel’s Rooms in collaboration with The Irish Hospice Foundation, was launched on the 5th January 2018, on what would have been Rosabel’s 2nd birthday.
The project is developing the following activities:
Through the Design & Dignity Programme at the Irish Hospice Foundation, this project is facilitating the development of family-friendly bereavement suites in hospital emergency departments around Ireland, which will provide comfort and dignity for families following the loss of a loved one.
The Rosabel’s Room-to-Heal fund is providing direct financial support to families, when a child dies in Ireland. The Fund is helping bereaved parents and families to take time off work, pay for funeral costs etc.
Over the coming paths, this project will work to ensure required therapeutic supports are made available for individuals impacted by child loss.

The aim of the Irish Hospice Foundation is to make the experience of dying as positive as it can be for those dying and for those left behind.
We have partnered with the Health Service Executive (HSE) to work with hospital managers and staff on improving care for patients at the end of life. We are working to empower hospitals to apply the principles of hospice care for the dying, the deceased and the bereaved.
Our Design & Dignity Project aims to create spaces or privacy and calm for dying patients and their families
