The Story of Laura and Lynn by Jane McKenna

19 Oct

Jane McKenna, the founder of LauraLynn, Ireland’s only Children’s hospice, has written her memoir Laura and Lynn’s story – Living in the shadow of their smiles”. The book published by Liffey Press, will be launched this Thursday, October 22nd by Senator David Norris with Miriam O’Callaghan.

Jane set about capturing her own personal memories over the past number of years and this evolved into a story that she felt she should share with many other parents. Her book is an honest and personal reflection on the experience of losing her two young daughters within 20 months of each other and includes diary excerpts and contributions from friends and LauraLynn Families.

The book is a tribute both to her two young daughters and her own determination to create a meaningful and rich legacy in their honour – LauraLynn Children’s Hospice.

Proceeds from the author will be donated towards a specific LauraLynn family project and copies can be pre-ordered at
