Message From The Chairperson
My name is Grainne Teefy. After successfully achieving my qualification, I became a trade embalmer.
The areas I cover are Louth, Monaghan, Down and surroundings area.
Coming from a medical background, I embarked on my embalming career training in Ireland with the Death Care Academy and with the BIE.
I served as secretary to the PEAI for the last four years during which our country was faced with a pandemic bringing lots of uncertainty.
The PEAI continued to obtain information from the HSE and the HSA with direct communication to and from our national organisations. This information was shared directly with our members. We kept our members up to date with protocols developments and precautions as guidance was received from our national health authorities.
I am very keen on providing our members with further educational opportunities relevant to our profession.
All members are bound to the PEAI Code of Practice, and for this reason my vision for the PEAI is to provide numerous hands on workshops.
I will be looking into how the PEAI can further aid our members in areas which will enhance our embalmers professional skills and technique and to become familiar and informed about new innovative products available in our industry.
I am passionate about after life care and I believe that modern embalming is central to helping families during the grieving process.
