About this Death Cafe
Our next Death Cafe Limerick event is virtual and is part of Limerick Institute of Technology Science Week 2020. Our Death Cafe will be full of chat about celebrating our own finite human lives, our mortality, and of course, cake! Space is limited so email firstname.lastname@example.org to get the Zoom link for the event. Participants will also receive a special Death Cafe Limerick gift thanks to our partners Limerick Institute of Technology Applied Science and Limerick Festival of Science 2020.
For more information message our Facebook page at Death Cafe Limerick, email email@example.com or go to www.deathcafe.com to learn more about the Death Cafe movement.
Open to individuals 18 and over; please note that a Death Cafe is not a bereavement counselling service. The aim of this online event is to increase our awareness of death as a way to make the most of our finite lives. In this online group discussion, we'll look at whatever is on your mind about death and dying (and eat some delicious cake and drink tea, coffee or any beverage you choose). This event will not be recorded and the confidentiality of all participants will be respected.
About Death Cafe Limerick
Jennifer Moran Stritch has been hosting real life and virtual Death Cafe events since 2015. As a lecturer and researcher at Limerick Institute of Technology, she works with a variety of topics connected to loss, grief, and bereavement in health and social care. Jennifer is also a certified thanatologist, focusing her work on the study of death and how humans react to, understand and manage it as part of our mortality. And she loves cake and talking and listening to people ;) so Death Cafes are a perfect fit.
Aoife McLoughlin has spent over 12 years lecturing Psychology, both in Ireland and in Singapore, with a focus on Human Development across the Lifespan. Aoife’s experience of living in a multicultural society opened her eyes to the varied traditions and customs around the world, especially when in comes to how we grieve and mourn. Within her role as a lecturer Aoife teaches that how we face our own mortality plays a large part in how we develop throughout our lives. Aoife believes that maintaining an open dialogue around our mortality is an important step on the way to having a good life, as well as a good death.
