‘This idea of a “new normal” doesn’t exist. Life has changed completely’ – Trying to cope after losing a child

A year after five-year-old Saoirse Heffernan died, her mum and dad left their Co Kerry home for a few nights away in Galway. “My brother and sister-in-law brought us away for a couple of nights,” remembers Mary Heffernan. “I was at the bar and a lady recognised me and came up to me and she said, ‘Oh, I have a little girl. If my little girl died, there’s no way I’d be out.’”

She said it in a caring way,” adds Heffernan. “I think she felt it was complimentary, sort of ‘aren’t you brilliant that you’re out’, but I had to go to the bathroom to try and compose myself, and I couldn’t. When I went back to the table, I couldn’t hold back the tears. I told the others I was going back to the hotel and we all left.”
