Bereaved parents who collaborated with artist Marie Brett in the sharing of their amulets were


Ann Dorgan

Bernice Jones

Cathy Sutton

Clare Quinn


Louise O’Connor (Foott)

Maria Fitzhenry

Marion Gabriel




Members of Ballyphehane/Togher Art + Craft Initiative also participated in the project, and as a voluntary collective designed and produced a significant number of layettes, as a deceased infant’s first and last amuletic robe. These tiny white sets were donated 
to maternity hospitals nationally.


The layettes originated during the Amulet projects research phase when project partners identified a link between the idea of an Amulet and that of a deceased baby’s transitional gown.


Additionally coffin wraps were also produced for the maternity unit in Waterford Regional Hospital.
