'There was something so very special' about a free and open to all talk entitled Our Mental Health Journey which took place at the Seven Oaks Hotel in Carlow on September 17. 

The meeting - organised by Senator Jennifer Murnane O'Connor, had speakers like presidential nominee Senator Joan Freeman, founder of Pieta House, Kathleen Chada and Angela Doyle-Stuart.

Speaking afterwards, Senator Murnane O'Connor said: "There was something so very special about our conversation on Monday night.

"We found a way, a light, a hope a possibility through listening to the inspiring and sometimes harrowing stories of loss, of grief, of anger, of frustrations, of hopelessness, of strength, of resilience, of survival.

"I was glad you were there, I hope you were too. Thank you to our speakers, to my very dedicated and tireless team, to all of you who came.

"I know the conversation is continuing in houses all over Carlow and further afield and I am glad because #yourstorymatters."
