Scariff Poetry Group at Palliative Care Conference
Scariff Poetry Group, led by Scariff Public Library staff member Aileen McDonagh, was delighted to contribute to the 3rd International Conference on palliative care run with the University of Limerick and under the guidance of Milford Hospice Librarian Joanne Callinan. Ms Callinan produced a beautiful booklet comprising a selection of poetry from Scariff Poetry Group and other contributors from around the country. The collection explores the thoughts and feelings of loved ones directly affected by death and dying. Its aim is to provide a medium of communication on topics that are often too painful to discuss. It is hoped that the collection will provide support for those dealing with similar situations. It is available to be viewed in the library at Scariff.
