For the sixth year in a row, Banter are very pleased and proud to be involved in the First Fortnight mental health arts festival. It’s a superb initiative which puts the focus firmly on challenging mental health prejudice through arts and cultural action at the very start of the year. Jim Carroll is joined for this event by All-Ireland winning hurler Seamus Hennessy. He will be talking about his life in hurling and his experiences growing up dealing with the traumatic experience of his mother’s suicide.
