Maria Dempsey

My Daughter

I am a Mother of seven children. Twelve years ago with my partner Paul and our, then, 4 children we moved from the Staffordshire moorlands to rural county Cork where we hoped to live a more sustainable life growing vegetables and turning our small holding in to a place of love and holistic wellbeing.

I have studied Art history and colour science, anatomy, physiology and lymphatic massage. I’ve always had an interest in social history and human rights more so since the murder of my daughter Alicia, her friend Sarah and Sarah’s two young children Reece and Amy in 2010.

So now I can add to my bio, the effects and affects of emotional trauma on families after domestic murder, the loneliness and isolation of post-traumatic stress disorder, dealing with the press and  waiting almost 3 yrs for the criminal justice system to conclude. Since 2013 we have had time to grieve and so now it is time for social justice, peace and love. I want to help give a voice to those gone too soon, their children and grandchildren, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and those who loved them xxx.
