    Hear from Irene originally hails from Limerick who’s world fell apart following the sudden death of her beloved husband.  Irene’s world became so small she didn’t open the curtains or venture further than the local shops for 9 years.  Confidence & her desire to live her life and get out had completely diminished.

    Irene recently said on Cara:

    “What a difference, I’m slowly opening up and doing things and surprising myself”.  On her Cara volunteer Mary “You’d think she’s my sister, we are so close!”.
