I am a Trade embalmer serving counties Kildare,Meath and Offaly.
After personally witnessing the benefits of modern embalming and what it can bring to a funeral visit, I was inspired to study embalming.
I returned to education as a mature student and spent three years studying with The Death Care Academy which which included time spend in the UK.
After successfully achieving my qualification I became a trade embalmer, taking care of family here in Ireland.

PRO -Professional Embalmers Association of Ireland (2015-Present)
Joe is a proud director of Corrigan and Sons Funeral Directors, Dublin; born into the undertaking business, the fourth generation to run the company.
I started training in embalming at the Midlands Embalming School,
To be a good embalmer or funeral director, I believe that temperament is the key, coupled with training and an ability to understand grief and the stages one goes through-loss, denial, acceptance.
People nowadays are more anxious than ever before about what death looks like, so, as an embalmer, you need to be sensitive to how a person looked in life. There’s a code of ethics around embalming which involves confidentiality and respect for the dead.
I believe that we embalmers can contribute a lot in easing such grief and in helping people move on.
