It was a very special event and over 100 people attended to support me and to wish the book well. It was a huge honour to have Aogán and Mark do the launch. Both men know me personally and Aogán referred to how I did teaching practice in his class over 30 years ago. Mark supervised my PhD research in St. Patrick’s College 1999-2001 and has become a close friend since. The event was hosted by my gifted Editor, Deirdre Nolan. who has worked with her team to transform my manuscript into the beautiful book it is.

I would like to thank Deirdre, Aogán and Mark for their very valued support and  for their strong endorsement of ‘How to Cope’. I would also like to thank the entire team in Gill & Macmillan as well as Siobhan Brady and Teresa Daly who organised such a wonderful event. Special thanks also to Croke Park for providing such a beautiful venue and to my family, friends and treasured clients for turning the launch into a wonderful celebration. Finally, I would like to thank Arthur Carron for taking these photos and for giving me permission to use them on my website. 

am truly blessed and needed to read some of ‘How to Cope’ later that night as I felt overwhelmed by all the good wishes I received! The book is now well launched and I know from the feedback I have received already that it is making a difference.
