Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald launches Best Will Week 2016

Support Best Will Week for The Irish Hospice Foundation

This year The Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF) joins together with over 70 other charities around Ireland to appeal to the public to leave a legacy gift, large or small, to charity in their will.   

Fergal O’Sullivan, Chairperson of My Legacy and the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality, Frances Fitzgerald at the launch of Best Will Week 2016

Clare Martin, Fundraising Manager, the IHF said: “Leaving a legacy to the IHF will enable Irish people to live well to the end. So all our loved ones can die with dignity and respect in a care setting of their choice. During Best Will Week please support the work of the IHF and give the gift of life with your legacy of kindness.”

Fergal O’Sullivan, Chairperson of My Legacy said “The number of Irish people who leave a legacy donation to charity is quite low compared to other countries. Remembering a charity in your will is a very meaningful experience that allows you to support a charity or cause you care about after you are gone. My Legacy charities would encourage everyone to take advantage of Best Will Week by making an appointment to visit your local solicitor for a will consultation to discuss your wishes and your lasting legacy.”

Best Will Week this year takes place from Monday, 31st October till Friday, 4th November. You can learn more about leaving a gift to charity and find a local participating solicitor for Best Will Week online at
