Faithful Departed - Aisling in Co Dublin trying to contact the living….and the dead, by Alex McDonnell

When Tom left Dublin 25 years ago he came straight to London and went straight on the drink and straight onto the streets. Since then Aisling has seen Tom in various hostels throughout London and he is now in a small, supported shared house in Ealing where his drinking is limited to three cans of beer each Sunday. This has had a dramatically positive effect on his health and Tom was now ready and willing to come to Dublin with us last December.

Season's Greetings from Aisling

Friendship and Family Not Fracking

Some emotional homecomings on Aisling’s first visit to Leitrim, but for how long will its wild beauty remain unspoiled? By Alex McDonnell.Aisling will be 20 next March (2014) and for most of the last two decades we have known Frank well, first when he lived in Arlington House where he spent a lot of his time drinking and hiding away and later when he managed to get through a detox and rehab programme and he was one of the first residents of Stockdale House, the ‘dry’ house near Mornington Crescent between Camden and Euston.

The forgotten Irish by Dervilla Keegan

It must have felt a far cry from Camden Town and the cottage ahead chimney puffing smoke from it, a world away from Arlington House. But they came slowly up the path, some on crutches, some halting, to drink in the view and others chatting to new acquaintances.

Kairos Community Trust reports on the work of the Aisling project

For one Kairos man, this was his first trip home in sobriety. “It was a momentous visit for him,” says John Glynn, the Aisling outreach worker who led the trip. “It had been many years since he had visited Ireland sober. We enabled him to travel by train to see his mum in the north-west and kept in touch daily.”
