Letter from the Editor

Welcome!

This month we celebrate Father’s Day – but, as many of us enjoy the day with our families, we think about the others for whom this special day heightens their sense of loss.

I don’t think I have ever read such a heartbreaking story as that of Majella Loughran from Maguiresbridge who bravely spoke to us this month about the tragic passing of her beloved husband Dermy.

This month we celebrate Father’s Day – but, as many of us enjoy the day with our families, we think about the others for whom this special day heightens their sense of loss.

I don’t think I have ever read such a heartbreaking story as that of Majella Loughran from Maguiresbridge who bravely spoke to us this month about the tragic passing of her beloved husband Dermy.

It’s been eight years since he was killed in an accident, shortly before the birth of their third child.

With great dignity and bravery, Majella tells us exactly how she feels about her life now as she struggles to cope with her devastating loss, while being the best mum to her three gorgeous children.

Her loss is palpable as your read her words – but yet somehow in the midst of her grief, she and her three children are fundraising to keep the memory of Dermy alive.

For the Loughrans, Father’s Day will be a bitter sweet day as they remember the great man who is no longer in their lives. I know we all wish them well and pray that they can find comfort in the months and years to come.

It makes me proud that so many of you wonderful women choose to share your remarkable stories with Local Women readers.

Please know that by sharing your stories you are helping others feel less alone as they face their own daily battles. Your generosity in sharing such personal stories is an amazing thing.

If anyone would like to share their story in Local Women, share some pictures or if you know anyone who should be featured, please get in touch.

Until next month
