'Keelin's compelling story is as powerful as the woman she was.' Liz Nugent
Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking is a masterpiece. This ranks alongside. How can such a beautifully written, intimate, heartbreaking memoir be so uplifting?' Joe Duffy
When journalist Keelin Shanley passed away in February 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 wrote a fantastic record of her life. Charting the twists and turns of both a remarkable career as an investigative journalist and a lengthy battle with cancer, in A Light That Never Goes Out Keelin reveals with real honesty what it's like to keep living your life and career - right up to becoming a co-anchor of RTE's Six One News - while dealing with the challenges of cancer treatment. Written with the help of Alison Walsh and completed posthumously by Keelin's husband Conor Ferguson, A Light That Never Goes Out is a remarkable story of courage and resilience and a memorable reflection on how to live well, no matter what you're facing.

This is such a beautiful book. It's oddly uplifting to read, even though at times I was jack-knived with sorrow. Keelin the most remarkable person - her positivity, her grace, her gratitude for her life would recalibrate anyone's attitude.
