A Longford author is preparing to launch a new book which takes a look at people who have been contacted by loved ones from beyond the grave.

Audrey Healy ‘s latest work, ‘Afterlife’, features testimonies from people who share their graphic experiences on the issue.

“I did not set out to prove or disprove the afterlife theory,” the author explained. “I am simply providing a forum for people to share their own experiences before presenting them to the public who can then make up their own minds.”

During the course of the book, Ms Healy also speaks to several independent experts on the subject, including a psychic, medium and healer, a life coach and spiritual director, a psychotherapist, spiritual consultants, a bereavement councillor and a historian with a PhD in the supernatural to get their opinions on this fascinating phenomenon.

This is Ms Healy’s second book on the subject, having previously published ‘Contacted’ in 2005, which was a collaborative effort with fellow author Don Mullan.

Ms Healy also has a number of other books to her credit, including ‘St Thérèse in Ireland’, ‘Dubliners: What’s the Story?’. and ‘The Singer and the Song’.

The Irish Times’ religious affairs correspondent, Patsy McGarry will be on hand to officially launch‘Afterlife’ on Wednesday, October 23. The event will take place at 7.30pm in Longford County Library.
