On Tuesday 15 February,  we hosted, with our colleagues in Trinity College Dublin’s renowned School of Social Work and Social Policy, a wonderful online event commemorating our friend and colleague, Sherie de Burgh.

During the evening we remembered Sherie, her work, warmth and humour and our panel of experts looked at the role of pregnancy counselling in Ireland past, present and future – asking the question what would Sherie do?

We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who attended and to our speakers on the evening Dorje de Burgh, Dr. Ruth Fletcher, who chaired the evening, Dr Catherine Conlon (TCD) and Anne McCarthy (NUI Maynooth) for making the event possible. A video of the event is now available and can be viewed below:

We’d also like to remind you of  the Sherie de Burgh Memorial Fund  which was set up to provide vital perinatal counselling services for mothers and to support vulnerable one-parent families. If you would like to donate to the fund you can do so here.
