Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services has promoted and/or published a good number of books over the years, ranging from historic references books, fiction, children’s books and books focused on bereavement.
Every book we support (or publish ourselves) is designed to help provide additional funds; money raised through book sales helps us continue to provide the highest levels of care possible for our patients and their families.
Please note, we are not currently accepting second-hand books for sale.
Below is a list of the books currently available for purchase:
At the moment we have an exceptional cookery book for sale that we published ourselves. “The Mixing Bowl – Second Helpings” is the sequel cookery book to our very popular Mixing Bowl book (published in 2011). It is a super book that would be a lovely addition in any kitchen- 136 page, spiral bound (very handy in the kitchen) and features a range of colour prints and artists drawings.
It comes as the result book of a great many hours hard work by volunteers and contributors (not least the well-known chef Neven Maguire who kindly contributed a recipe of his own, see page 46).
We are also busy promoting a really beautiful collection of letters compiled and edited by Orlaith Carmody and written by famous personalities from the world of media, arts, music, sports business and politics. Each shows different experiences of death and loss.
