Anam Cara – support for bereaved parents in Inishowen

On Wednesday 18th October Anam Cara will host an Information Evening in Buncrana.

It is aimed at bereaved parents from across Inishowen and will be the first time Anam Cara has held an event on the peninsula. The guest speaker is Brid Carroll. Brid recently facilitated another Anam Cara event and this was the feedback from one of the parents present:

“I was more at ease here than with friends or family since the tragic loss of my son. There was no holding back on what we needed to say and all of us could identify with the others’ pain. Nothing that was said was judged by anyone else. There was a common bond. No one was afraid to talk of their children’s lives and deaths for fear of upsetting the other. It was welcomed.”

Anam Cara is an organisation that supports bereaved parents across the country. They will hold a

Bereavement Information Evening on Wednesday 18th of October in the Gateway Hotel, Buncrana, from 7pm-9pm.

Bríd Carroll who is experienced in supporting bereaved parents will talk for about forty minutes. Then there’ll be an opportunity to speak, or simply to listen to other bereaved parents. You can also talk to Bríd should you have any questions or concerns. The event is free of charge and is open to all bereaved parents, no matter the age of your child or the circumstances of his or her death. See for more details or call their Information Line on 085 2888 888.

Please note that this event is open to bereaved parents only.
