Pobail le Chéile Community Development project in Falcarragh has launched a beautiful resource book and website for parents and children who are coming to terms with the loss.
“Lily’s Grandpa Is an Angel” which is a book written and illustrated by Maria Gasol, a Catalan artist living in the Cloughaneely area.
“Lily’s Grandpa Is an Angel” is a short illustrated book about grief and love.
Inspired by personal experience of Covid bereavement and in digital form, it’s suitable for both adults and children.
Through its 20 illustrated pages, we see a little girl whose grandpa has died, trying to console her heartbroken mother through her belief that he is an angel with superpowers, having fun and watching over his family.
It will hopefully bring a bit of comfort to those grieving.
Conceived as a free-to-download PDF, it is supported by the Irish Hospice Foundation and Creative Ireland through the “Seed Grants”:11 nationwide projects where artists, craftspeople and community groups are using creativity to explore death and loss.
Pobail le Chéile is supporting Maria in hosting a link to the book on its website and in letting everyone know about it – the book is a great resource for parents and children who are coming to terms with the loss of someone close to them.
