You are looking for a Civil Funeral Celebrant in Ireland. Here is some information about me and how I can help.
I am based in Dublin so naturally, requests for my services will largely be from the Dublin/Leinster/East Coast area but, where possible and where the time constraints allow, I am happy to come to your assistance wherever required throughout Ireland. I have many years of experience of End of Life issues. Through those years I have helped many families to cope with the aftermath and heartbreak of having lost a loved family member. I aim to help you plan a fitting funeral ceremony for your loved one.
I will meet with you at your home, or at the funeral home, if that is what you prefer, and I will consult with you empathically so that together we can create exactly the funeral ceremony you wish to arrange. Whatever your wishes are for the funeral, I am here to help make them happen.
Each person is a unique individual and I believe that each funeral should be as unique and as individual as the person concerned. As a Funeral Celebrant who has undergone training with The Irish Institute of Celebrants I will work to get it right for you and your family, drafting a ceremony with as much or as little religious content as you wish.
To arrange a funeral is a special privilege at a time when families are feeling sadness and pain, overwhelmed by the loss of a loved one. Whatever your situation, I’d like to help you through this.
I will work with your funeral director and with crematorium and cemetery staff. At a funeral, you will, of course, mourn the loss of your loved one. Even so, a funeral is also your opportunity to celebrate and express thanks for the life of the person whose loss is mourned. To help you achieve this, I can help you select appropriate music, readings and poems. I will write, or help you to write, the eulogy (tribute) reflecting the life, character, achievements, hopes, beliefs and values of your loved one.
On the day of the funeral, I will conduct the ceremony ensuring that everything runs as smoothly as possible, giving assistance to family and friends if they wish to be involved in any part of the ceremony, for example by reading a meaningful poem or delivering the eulogy.
I can promise you a reliable, empathetic service, meeting you on time wherever required and easing your way through your time of loss.
I have been endorsed by The Irish Institute of Celebrants and I adhere to their code of ethics.
So, whatever the circumstances, you will find me ready, willing and able to assist you with the preparation and delivery of a fitting tribute to your loved one with kindness, understanding and compassion guaranteed. Just contact me to arrange a meeting.
