Irish funeral celebrant and eulogy service

Do you need me to perform the eulogy for an Irish funeral service?

Over the years I've performed my music at countless funeral services in churches and chapels as well as singing songs with my guitar at gravesides from London - Birmingham - Liverpool and across the country.

I've also been asked on several occasions to read the service eulogies and to act as the celebrant.

This has grown in popularity, which has prompted me to add this to the services I can provide.

As a live performer and songwriter, I have many years experience in public speaking and communication skills, as well as the ability to put together eulogy content befitting your needs for a dignified and memorable farewell to your loved one.

I've been an active member of the London Irish community all of my life and I'm always moved by the remarkable stories behind the lives of our emigrant parents, Grandparents and of course the UK born Irish.

If you'd like to discuss the option of me conducting a eulogy on your behalf I'd be honoured to hear from you.

Seán Brady.

My fee is £290 all inclusive*.
