As an independent funeral celebrant, I have the flexibility to deliver funerals and celebration of life ceremonies outside of a church setting. I believe that every individual deserves a final tribute which not only reflects their own unique personality and approach to life, but that also honours and celebrates the unique gifts they brought to this world, and the legacy they leave behind.
I will work with you, and those closest to you, along with your funeral director, in order to create and carry out a beautifully unique funeral ceremony, which reflects the character, personality and beliefs of your loved one.
“Grief is the price we pay for love”
(Colin Murray Parkes)
I am a caring and supportive individual and have worked closely with families for the last 20 years, nurturing and encouraging them at pivotal moments in their lives. I have a kind listening ear and so appreciate the opportunity to sit down with people to hear all about their loved one. I am an empathetic individual committed to delivering dignified and personable ceremonies.
I am a very proud member of Entheos Ireland. I received my diploma in funeral celebrancy from The Irish Institute of Celebrants. I am a founding member of The Association of Funeral Celebrants Ireland (AFCI) and also affiliated to The Irish Ethical Celebrants Society.
When you have to face the future without someone you love, there is nothing anyone can say or do to take that pain away. There is no right way to feel or behave; all you can do is get through each day as best you can. One of the first challenges you will face is organising the funeral and I will be by your side as a pillar of support, strength and encouragement as you
journey through this difficult part of your life.
It is important that we celebrate life with honesty, warmth and affection. In the ceremony we will use wording and music that are personal and appropriate. Each ceremony should be as unique and special as the person being celebrated.
“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal;
love leaves a memory no one can steal” (Irish proverb)
