After losing her sister Dara at sea, Niamh Fitzpatrick reveals what the RNLI means to her
On 14 March, 2017, Irish Coast Guard helicopter 116 crashed into the sea off County Mayo, killing four crew members. One of those killed was Niamh Fitzpatrick’s sister, Dara. The RNLI recovered Dara’s body. Niamh explains how the RNLI helped her through the loss of her sister, and why the family’s bond with Achill Island RNLI, in particular, is so close. Niamh later drew on her experience to write the book: Tell Me the Truth About Loss: A Psychologist’s Personal Story of Loss, Grief and Finding Hope.
