Henry McKean took an early morning walk with Alicy Leahy who runs the Alice Leahy Trust, a befriending social and health service for people who are homeless. Henry and Alice started their walk at the Rathmines Post Office and walked towards Bride Road in Dublin where the Alice Leahy Trust is situated. On the walk Alice looks back at her 30 years living in Rathmines, her Tipperary roots, her values, what drives her at 78 to keep going and on the way meets people from all walks of life.

Alice Leahy's memoir The Stars Are Our Only Warmth is available in all book shops.
