Support Groups

Support Groups within the Parish

These can be challenging times for individuals, couples and families so it is
important to remember that there are many avenues of support available to
you and to those whom you may be worried about. The following list might help
and of course, the doctors in the area, the supports through our schools, your
neighbours and friends and as always, a supportive conversation with Fr. Larry.

THE IVERAGH BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT GROUP If you wish to contact a member of the Iveragh Bereavement Support Group, you can rely on their absolute confidentiality. It is the policy of the members not to impose themselves but to be available to listen with sympathy and understanding and to support the bereaved, if invited.
