My grandfather was an undertaker. My dad was a storyteller.
Naturally I want to tell stories about death…

November is the month when Catholics traditionally remember their dead – the Holy Souls.
Observed since the ancient Irish festival of Samhain, it’s the time of year when our physical and the supernatural worlds are closest.
But what do you do when there’s a dead body in your bedroom, the body of your gay partner?
Send out the notices.
Stock up on Barry’s tea and barmbrack and prepare for the funeral.
A DIY funeral.

In these poignant, personal and gently humorous stories of ritual and loss, let master storyteller Richard O’Leary take you to the other side and back.
