A brand-new memorial website, EternallyIrish.com offers families and friends the chance to create an online Irish home for loved ones who have sadly passed away, in the uniquely Irish tradition of gathering together to share stories and memories.
March is the month to celebrate your Irish heritage and to come together as an Irish community – wherever you are in the world. And now, thanks to a new website, EternallyIrish.com, families, and friends can create an online Irish home for loved ones who have passed away, remembering those who have gone before us and honoring their Irish heritage this St Patrick’s Day.
EternallyIrish.com is a place for families to gather, no matter where they are in the world, to share stories of those who have passed away and to sympathize with family and friends who have been bereaved. The website recognizes that losing a loved one is never easy, but the uniquely Irish tradition of gathering together in times of need can help ease the burden somewhat. In a world where people are living increasingly isolated lives, this Irish tradition of coming together in times of need is more important than ever – and is an aspect of Irish life that is celebrated during the month of March in particular.

Eternally Irish gives a family the opportunity to create a perfectly Irish place for their loved one, a place where their memory can live on, an Irish home for all eternity. For people who have fond memories of the Ireland of their youth, this is a chance for a family to bring their loved one home to an Irish space online once more. We can also personally arrange to collect the ashes of your loved one from any location worldwide and bring them home to Ireland, capturing your loved one's return to Ireland in beautiful photographs or video.
“Eternally Irish gives families the opportunity to create a unique memorial for their loved ones, a place that people can gather to share their stories and memories and offer each other comfort in a time of need,” explains Tony Williams, the creator of Eternally Irish and the proprietor of Dignity Funeral Homes in Co. Galway.
“Our years of experience in helping people in times of grief have shown us that bereaved families value hugely the company of others in the days, months and even years after a loved one has passed. When your family is scattered all over the world – as most Irish families are – Eternally Irish gives you the opportunity to share memories and stories, and to show a bereaved family that you remember and care. The bereaved family can read these stories and memories and remember their loved ones with a smile.
“Eternally Irish also gives Irish people the opportunity to reconnect with their Irish heritage – something that is particularly valued as St Patrick’s Day approaches,” Tony continues. “Us Irish are a proud race, and whether you grew up in Ireland, enjoyed holidays with Irish relatives over the years, or just retained your sense of Irishness abroad, Eternally Irish is a chance to give your loved one a piece of Ireland, complete with the rich traditions of storytelling and community, for all eternity.”
Tony and the Eternally Irish team recently launched the website to the Irish diaspora in New York, the surrounding area, and Boston. “Eternally Irish has been incredibly well-received,” he explains. “We visited the Aisling Center in Yonkers, the New York Irish Center in Long Island, the Emerald Isle Immigration Center and the American Irish Historical Society, as well as meeting the Deputy Consul in New York and were featured on WROL in Boston. By talking with Irish emigrants, we realized that there was a real hunger to celebrate Irish heritage in families and to share this heritage with other Irish emigrants around the world. Eternally Irish gives these families this opportunity to both honor and celebrate the Irish heritage of those family members who have passed away.”
Beautifully designed with sumptuous pictures of the Irish landscape, Eternally Irish is an easy-to-navigate website that allows the bereaved to easily and quickly create a memorial for their loved one, and invite people from around the world to come together in sympathy for their loss and in celebration of their loved one’s life. The unique site allows you to reconnect your loved one with their Irish roots and heritage and to share as many stories, anecdotes and memories as you want.
With every memorial that you make, the Eternally Irish team will light an Eternal Candle for your loved one and you will receive a Certificate as a memento.
“Grief goes far beyond a funeral,” says Tony. “We have learned that families and friends derive as much comfort from the love and sympathy of others for months and years after a loved one has passed. In a month when Irish heritage is celebrated around the world, why not create a page for someone precious who was proud of their Irish heritage and celebrate their life and achievements?”
