Áras Contae an Chláir to light up for Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day
Clare County Council is helping to raise awareness of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, which takes place on 15th October this year.
The Council will light up Áras Contae an Chláir in the colours pink and blue on this date.
Gemma O’Gorman, from Kilmurry McMahon, is raising awareness of the cause and the need for supports for families affected by miscarriage and infant death.
Ms O’Gorman said: “In lighting up its headquarters, Clare County Council, in my opinion, is creating a platform for those who wish to acknowledge their loss and show a sense of solidarity with each other and that they are not alone. It may also encourage those who wish to gather and talk.”
The Mayor of Clare, Cllr Mary Howard, said: “Clare County Council is pleased to support Gemma in raising awareness of the issues around miscarriage and infant death. We will be lighting up Áras Contae an Chláir on 15th October in sympathy with those who have experienced a loss and to mark this important day of remembrance.”
