November is traditionally a time to remember those in our lives who have died.  As such, it provides an opportunity for comfort and sharing, for coming together with others who have lost someone. 

The Irish Hospice Foundation is hosting an evening of remembrance on Thursday, 1st   November.  This is a free public information event allowing people to hear about aspects of loss and bereavement which may help them to understand aspects of their own loss.

At the event on November 1st Niamh Fitzpatrick (Psychologist, sister of Capt. Dara Fitzpatrick) will talk about ‘Living with Loss’ – observations on grief from the inside out.

Throughout the evening, which begins at 5.30pm, there will also be videos and an opportunity to meet with and find out about bereavement support services operating in the Dublin area.

It is often said that ‘death ends a life, not a relationship’.  Relationships remain with us; the special connections, memories, shared stories, the good and the bad times are part of life and will live on.

This free public information event about bereavement is hosted by the Irish Hospice Foundation, and sponsored by Flanagan’s Funeral Directors.  It will take place on Thursday, 1st November 5.30pm to 8.00pm at the Alex Hotel, 41-47 Fenian Street (off Merrion Square), Dublin 2.  All are welcome to attend.
