  1. 1. We Don’t Know Ourselves by Fintan O'Toole

    "We Don't Know Ourselves" by Fintan O'Toole is a collection of essays that explores the current state of Ireland and its people. O'Toole argues that Ireland's sense of identity has been shaped by its history of colonization and the struggle for independence, but that this identity is now being challenged by globalization and the changing social and economic landscape. He examines issues such as immigration, the Catholic Church's declining influence, and the rise of nationalism, and ultimately argues that Ireland needs to embrace a new sense of identity that is inclusive and forward-thinking.

Through a raw and honest narrative, the author explores the complexities of her son's struggle with depression, the impact of his condition on their family, and the profound grief that follows his tragic death. The memoir serves as a meditation on loss, love, and the often misunderstood nature of mental health, offering a touching tribute to her son while also shedding light on the broader issues surrounding mental illness and the challenges faced by those who suffer from it and their loved ones.
