We also have Louise Lynch, who is a mindfulness & wellbeing coach. Louise works with adults and adolescents, supporting them in maintaining balance, wellbeing, and self-care. She is passionate about supporting parents and their children in the area of mindfulness & reducing stress, anxiety, and overwhelm. Louise will be conducting mindfulness exercises and creative activities with attendees, offering lifelong tools to bring into their daily lives.

Additionally, we will have the Honorary Consul of France, Loic Guyon, who is doing amazing work on the Sarsfield Homecoming Project here in Limerick. Loic will be giving a wonderful and insightful presentation on the Sarsfield Homecoming Project, providing details about the Limerick man Sarsfield, his story, and the efforts being made to bring him home to Limerick where he belongs.

Furthermore, Limerick Treaty Suicide Prevention will be in attendance to chat with people on-site and provide insight into the incredible work they do in Limerick. They will also offer options for support services if you have been affected by suicide.

Alex was incredibly passionate about this project and organized a fundraiser for it this year, raising one thousand euros. The project is now in her honor.
