The following article, written by Michael Quinn an ACI member, was recently published in the Irish Examiner. It touchingly describes his experience of losing his 23-year-old daughter Veronica.
Based in Newry but originally from Cork, Michael and his wife Terri founded the parent-support charity The Family Caring Trust. The Family Caring Trust provides quality parenting resources to families and community groups in Ireland and the UK for almost 30 years now. In 2002 Terri and Michael received the Bethany Family Institute Award for their innovation in introducing a pro-active response to family relationship education. Over half a million parents have experienced at least one of the low-cost community-based courses and they have been translated into 19 languages.
Michael Quinn’s new book An Armagh Childhood is available on Amazon.com. All proceeds from the book will go to Family Caring Trust.
