A unique celebration of one of the oldest rites of Humanity, the Irish Wake
'We’ve lost our way with death', says Kevin Toolis – 'but the Irish wake, where the living, the bereaved and the dead remain bound together, shows us the way things could be done. My father’s dying, his wake, his willing sharing of his own death, would too be his last parental lesson to his children and his community. A gift.’
