Jen Ronan

 In Uncategorised

In episode 21 of The Limerick Lady podcast, Ann Blake and Emma Langford meet with blogger Jen Ronan to talk about grief and loss during the COVID-19 pandemic. Recorded in early August as Ireland was coming out of lockdown, grief and loss weighed heavily on the hearts of many. All three podcasters have been recently bereaved, and so the conversation naturally reflects on their experiences, but they also discuss the grief that accompanies loss of normalcy and loss of livelihood.
