Pat Kenny invited me on to his radio show on May 26th, 2021, on Newstalk FM. This is a long enough piece (at just over 30 minutes), and we discuss suicidal ideation, the desire to end my, and my girls’ lives, and a bit about how I managed to get from there to here (where it’s been over five years since I felt like killing myself).
It may not be an easy listen, so I urge self-care before, during, and after listening to it. The page, with the link to the audio, can be accessed here.
I was thrilled to have been asked to contribute to the ‘Researching Representations of Child Sexual Abuse in Contemporary Culture’ symposium, on May 25th, 2021. My paper looked at a survivor’s perspective on cultural representations. My contribution can be heard here:
