March 10 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Date: 10th of March, 2022

Time: 7.30 – 8.30pm

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

Our professional speaker, Niamh Finucane (Coordinator of Social Work & Bereavement Service, 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.

Our guest, Niamh Fitzpatrick will host our Q&A panel. Niamh, an author and a psychologist, experienced the sudden death of her sister, Capt. Dara Fitzpatrick, during an Irish Coast Guard Rescue operation in 2017.
