How One Offaly Woman Recovered From Losing Three Family Members In One Week

Written 2 weeks ago by Angel Croitor


Kathleen Kilroe has been through hell and back all in the space of a week.

The Tullamore woman had first lost her father to cancer and that took a toll on her eldest son Jamie.

Jamie was a very out going and was a person who would often ask other people to seek him out if they ever needed to talk when they were feeling down.

Unfortunately, as life took it’s toll and Jamie found himself in hardship with his start up business, he asked to be admitted into Portlaoise Hospital as he was suicidal and was told that there was a three month waiting list.

Kathleen describes losing her son as a pain she has never felt before. He committed suicide last October.

But that wouldn’t be the final grief to strike her family as you can hear in the full interview above as Kathleen also tells us how she lost her faith but found the light amongst her friends and neighbours.
