Way To Go? Death And The Irish
Presented by Norah Casey, whose husband Richard died in 2011, the frank and revealing film features first hand experiences of a broad range of people including healthcare professionals and people who are dying speaking openly and honestly about going through what will be the last months of their own lives.
We also hear the thoughts and amusing anecdotes from well-known figures such as actor Gabriel Byrne, broadcasters Marian Finucane and George Hook, and comments from members of the general Irish public.
Blending even tones of light and dark material the programme prompts the question, given its 100% certain to happen to every single one of us, why don’t we want to talk about it? It also examines whether or not it possible for all of us to plan ahead for a more dignified death.
