Season 2 Episode 11 – Ian

Trigger warning on this weeks episode we talk about suicide with descriptions of someone dying by suicide.

On this weeks episode I sit down with Ian Kinsella, Ian talks to me about his brother Jonathan this year will be Jonathan’s 10yr anniversary. Jonathan died by suicide. 

Ian tells me what it is like being left behind after suicide and how a loss through suicide is like no other and tells me in his own way how the grief and be complex and even traumatic, experiencing his own suicidal thoughts for the immediately after Jonathan’s death. 

He tells me how he would be lost without the support of his wife Stacey, his and her family and his fantastic group of friends.

He shares some fond memories of Jonathan and tells me of their mutual love of Dublin, Celtic and the odd ballad.

This episode was very difficult it is very raw, very honest. Ian you are an absolute credit to Jonathan, how you are keeping his memory alive is a testament to the love you have for him.
