When Keelin Shanley passed away aged 51, it was hard to grasp that someone so filled with life was gone. But a light so bright never really goes out, especially since in her last few months Keelin left behind this remarkable record of her life - a life cut short, but lived to the fullest.
Charting the twists and turns of both a career as an investigative journalist and a lengthy battle with cancer, A Light That Never Goes Out reveals with real honesty what it’s like to keep living your life whilst dealing with the challenges of cancer treatment.
"A beautiful love story, a behind-the-scenes career exposition and a candid telling of what it is like to live with, and die from, cancer. Heartbreakingly honest and heartachingly inspirational." (Caitríona Perry, RTÉ Six One News co-presenter and author)
"I found myself moved again and again by how simply and truthfully Keelin talks about the experience of dying and I am in awe of the immense courage she showed in her final months." (Lenny Abrahamson, director Normal People, Room)
"I was deeply moved by her courageous, candid memoir." Madeleine Keane, Irish Independent)
