County Sligo – Contae Shligigh

Sligo is represented by Dr Susan Tilki, a clinical psychologist and second–generation Irish person.

Susan remembers family trips to the Waterglades, which was her grandfather’s garden near the edge of Lough Gill by Tobernalt Holy Well, not far from Hazelwood Forest on the other side of the Garvoge River. 

In her video, she reflects on the effects of lockdown and the pandemic on mental health – particularly on families as she works in a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. She wishes everyone a happy and healthy St Patrick’s Day.
