About the Library
The Thérèse Brady Library was established in 2003 as a core element of the education and training function of the Irish Hospice Foundation. The library, which houses a specialist collection of material about bereavement, death & dying, palliative care and the hospice philosophy commemorates Thérèse Brady who developed the Irish Hospice Foundation’s bereavement services. On her death Therese’s library of books on bereavement were donated to the Hospice Foundation forming the central core around which the library collection was developed.
