Looking Ahead with Hope is a collection of short, inter-connected pieces written over a three-year period in which Eddie Gilmore has worked as CEO for the Irish Chaplaincy, a charity which supports Irish people in Britain, including prisoners, Travellers and Seniors. At the heart of Eddie' s book, which weaves together his visits to prisons, care homes and monasteries with travels further afield - pilgrimage on the Camino in Spain, walking retreats in the French Alps, and meetings and events in Ireland - are encounters with a host of characters, which touch and transform and which reveal our deep connections with one another. These are stories of wonder, reflections on faith and on the human condition, with a frequent refrain of gratitude, and of hope.
has been CEO of the Irish Chaplaincy since 2017, before which he was a member of L' Arche for 28 years. He writes regularly for a number of publications including Catholic Times, Intercom (the journal of the Irish Catholic Bishops), and Independent Catholic News.
