End of Life Ireland


Ireland is changing and so too are attitudes around how we live and die. The Dying with Dignity Bill 2020 is before the Dáil and choice at end of life, including Voluntary Assisted Dying (VAD) is on the agenda. We believe a ‘good death’ is possible for everyone. VAD may not be your choice, what we ask is that you support the right for people to choose for themselves. 

Read our Oireachteas submission on the Dying with Dignity Bill.

Over on our blog, our committee member Alan Tuffery describes how he has prepared his end of life affairs in a series of five short blog posts.

We have an extensive FAQ, at this link. If you have any further questions please use email us at info@endoflifeireland.ie. Our committee will make every endeavour to respond to your questions!

Watch our committee member Helen O’Shaughnessy’s talk. Since graduating as a nurse in 1981, Helen’s nursing experience extended to working in Scotland, the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Australia and New Zealand. She has actively campaigned for social change, including abortion rights, separation of church and state and the removal of blasphemy laws from the Irish Constitution.  As an active Humanist and accredited celebrant in NZ, she moved back to Ireland in 2017 to care for her late sister who was then terminally Ill.
