About this Death Cafe
This "pop-up" Death Cafe Limerick event is part of the Compassionate Cities International Summit taking place on October 7, 2016 at the Castletroy Park Hotel in Limerick, Ireland: This international summit explores how cities and towns can implement the new Compassionate Cities Charter to become recognised as communities that place civic society at the heart of illness, dying, death and bereavement.
