Anne Canavan Self Help Book

Moville woman, Anne Canavan, has contributed a chapter to a self help book the pre-launch profits of which will go to a very worthwhile charity.

The charity is the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust which helps people who have a loved one die abroad to get their loved one home again.

It was started by Colin and Eithne Bell whose 26 year old son Kevin died in a hit and run accident in New York. They had so much trouble getting him home that they set up the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust to help others who ave similar problems.

They have already helped almost 1,000 Irish people to get the bodies of their loved one home again.

However, they badly need funds to keep doing this.

Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust

Anne met Colin and Eithne at a get together for lottery winners.

When a friend of the family died in Australia, Anne was able to point the family in he direction of Colin and Eithne and they were able to get a lot of help from them.

Now Anne has written a chapter for a self help book which will launch shortly. It is called BELIFE or BELIEF. It contains 20 real life stories of people who have fought back against adversity to triumph and how they did it.

Said Anne “Sincere thanks to all who have supported us and the exceptional charity. This is a book written by ordinary people who share how we overcame our various experiences and challenges and hopefully people will resonate with the stories. Some chapters will be very relatable in the current challenging times”

It is led by best selling author Donna Kennedy. Anne has contributed a chapter about her story to it.


The official launch of the book is on November 5th. However, Anne said that the author and publisher will donate all profits for any books ordered before the launch to the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust.

Said Anne “all contributors nominated a charity and mine was picked out of a hat”.

The ‘BELIFE or BELIEF’ book is available to pre-order for €14.99 at  All profits from pre-orders of the book (up until Thursday November 5th) will be donated to The Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust.    Anyone who buys three books will also receive a free two-hour live group workshop online with author and mentor Donna Kennedy.
