About this Death Cafe

At a Death Café people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, enjoy café-type drinks and discuss death. 

Our objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.

A Death Café is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. There are no ''experts'' at a Death Café, therefore no guest speakers etc. 

Our Death Cafés are always offered: 
- On a not for profit basis 
- In an accessible, respectful and confidential space 
- With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action 
- Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake! 

About Dr Seán O'Connell

The evening will be gently guided & facilitated by Dr Seán O'Connell, Counselling Psychologist - you can read more about Seán here ---> 
Seán says, ''I'm interested in the reality of death. For something so certain, we don't spend a lot of time discussing or even preparing for it. I came to the Death Cafe to bounce thoughts around and hear other’s perspectives, in a space where we are almost given "permission" to freely talk about death. Outside this space there may be a tendency to be labelled as morbid, be dismissed, or cause worry which is a stigma. My wish is to bring death to life, and have more people talk about it. I find that these types of discussions give rise to leading a more meaningful life.''
