Colm Keane was one of Ireland’s most successful authors, with eight No. 1 bestsellers and numerous top-five bestsellers in his 30 year publishing career. He was, perhaps, best known for exploring the mysteries of death and dying. In Going Home, his first book on the subject, Colm Keane asked a simple question – what happens when we die? In his last book, Journey’s End, he concluded that death is not an end but a new beginning.
In the course of his groundbreaking work, he interviewed hundreds of people concerning their near-death experiences and deathbed visions producing three more books on the subject – The Distant Shore, We’ll Meet Again and Heading for the Light. The critics described Colm’s writing as ‘fascinating,’ ‘extraordinary,’ and ‘compelling’.
Colm Keane’s publications included three No. 1 chart-toppers on the Italian stigmatic Padre Pio. A further study of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, which was co-written with his wife, former RTÉ newsreader Una O’Hagan, reached No. 1 in the non-fiction charts.
In September 2021 they published, The Book of St. Brigid, which also became a bestseller. It features the life story and miracles of the iconic abbess, bishop, feminist and saint, Brigid of Kildare, including her legacy to the present day.
