Tocht na Máthar

This insightful series examines how mothers cope when the worst happens to their children. The thought of her child getting hurt or injured is something that every mother dreads as the happiness of her child is at the core of her existence.
Family occasions of all kinds resonate with loss – not just for the past, but for what the future might have held.
Every story is unique but the common theme is the strength and resilience that Irish mothers display in the face of such adversity.
With moving first-hand accounts from mothers who have survived everything from losing a child to a rare form of cancer, having a child left paralysed due severe head trauma, murder and losing a child to Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.
This series shows that there can be life after loss and hope from tragedy.
