The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the traditional ways we mark our grief. For the moment, it is not possible to come together and to gather in one location. It is not possible to have a large funeral. It may not be possible to receive the company of those who wish to offer condolences. However, we can support ourselves and each other in different ways.

The Irish Hospice foundation has published some information to help bereaved families at this very challenging time. Please feel free to download and view the information booklets from the links below.
