Happy Christmas and New Year to all our fantastic supporters!


Remember your loved one this Christmas



No one should be forgotten, especially at Christmas. Christmas is a special time when families come together and enjoy each other’s company. But for those who are feeling the loss of a loved one, it can also be a sad and lonely time.

When a loved one dies, memories come flooding back. We think about the love and laughter that person brought during their time with us. It can be difficult to celebrate without them.

Last year, in response to our Never Forgotten Appeal, we were touched by so many poignant messages in remembrance of those who have died, and generous donations in support of our work. Every day we turn a page of our Book of Remembrance 2016, which sits proudly in our serene Therese Brady library. You are welcome to visit and view these heartfelt tributes.


This year as Glenda is remembering her husband Peter, we invite you to remember that someone close to you in our 2017 Book of Remembrance by making a donation. Your kindness will allow more people to live well with dignity and comfort until the end, in a setting of their choice surrounded by loved ones.


Reindeer Food available now!

Reindeer Food, a special recipe of oats and magic, is on sale for €2 in all MACE stores, branches of LloydsPharmacy and Superdrug around Ireland in the run up to Christmas – with all proceeds going to support The Irish Hospice Foundation.  We also have some available here in our Online Shop.

All the boys and girls awaiting Santa’s important arrival should sprinkle a packet of reindeer food in the garden on Christmas Eve to guide Santa to their home. Rudolf and the rest of the hardworking reindeer will be able to keep their strength up as they enjoy the magical snack while Santa pops down the chimney.
