A workshop organised by young adults for young adults to navigate mental health challenges post-lockdown will take place online this week.

'Reconnection, Minding Your Mind as We Leave Lockdown', is for those aged 18 to 30 years and will be held via Zoom this Thursday (June 10) at 7.30pm.

The event will be hosted by the Diocese of Kerry 'YouthDoK' Young Adult Group.

ADVICE: Senior clinical psychologist Dr Keith Gaynor will offer advice during the webinar.

Well-known senior clinical psychologist and author Dr Keith Gaynor, who specialises in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) treatments of anxiety and depression, will offer some insights and advice regarding how to best take care of mental health as society emerges from the isolation of lockdown, and how to reconnect with society in a healthy and positive way.

During the lockdown some people have thrived at home, preferring the flexibility COVID offered in relation to study or work, while others have felt blocked, isolated and that their lives have been suspended.

Some may experience a range of emotions from feeling happy, excited, and relieved to be back, to feeling anxious, afraid, or angry. The workshop will provide opportunities to gain some insights and advice, while connecting with other young people across the diocese.

“This workshop would be great to attend as restrictions are eased and to discuss the changes, we are going to face in society following COVID-19," Chloe Daly from YouthDoK said.

Young adults who wish to join the workshop can follow the event on Instagram@YouthDoK and can find more details on the diocesan website dioceseofkerry.ie.

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.
