Having a good online presence is key, especially when it comes to being found locally and beyond. One industry that has made strides with this is the funeral industry, which has embraced the importance of having well-designed websites and active social media channels.

In this episode, we chat with Mary Cunniffe former President of The Irish Association of Funeral Directors and now Branch Manager of Massey Brothers Funeral Directors, and Colm Kiernan who is Funeral Care and Communications Consultant at Funeral Director Solutions Ireland’s Specialist Web Design and Digital Marketing Service for Funeral Directors.

Update on ease of Government restrictions on funeral services, as of Monday 10th May.

Unfortunately, it is still not possible to have a large funeral as we still navigate the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. We understand how difficult this is for you the families we serve but the safety of everyone is our priority. We must play our part in the strict adherence to these instructions.

Only immediate family and close friends should attend the funeral.

No more than 50 people are permitted to attend the funeral service or be present at the graveside. Numbers allowed in Crematoria vary, your Funeral Arranger will be able to advise on exact numbers.

The numbers who may attend gatherings in our funeral homes is limited at this time. Again, your Funeral Arranger can advise you on the numbers as it depends on the size of the funeral home.

Face masks must be worn when entering our funeral homes. It is also recommended that they are worn in churches and crematoriums. When visiting our funeral homes for your safety, we ask that you provide your contact details for the benefit of track and trace.

Those in attendance will also need to follow social distancing guidelines. This means all funeral attendees must keep a distance of 2 metres apart.

Physical interactions including shaking hands and hugging must be avoided.

Those who are self-isolating or need to restrict their movements can not attend funerals.

Many of our churches have implemented streaming services so that family and friends can view the service from home. Please ask your Funeral arranger for details.

We encourage the wider family and friends of loved ones who have passed, to leave a message of condolence on our website www.masseybros/funeral-notices/

It is essential for the safety of everyone that we act wisely and adhere to these clear instructions from our Government.

From us all at Massey Bros we would like to sincerely thank you for your co-operation during these difficult times. #Staysafe
