Weddings and funerals are the cement which keep Irish society distinctly cohesive. We love a good wedding as much as we appreciate a funeral, because both events provide an opportunity for extended and scattered families and friends to become reacquainted. When our dad died in the autumn, loads of family friends travelled from afar to be at the wake and funeral and seeing everybody again brought genuine joy to the solemnity.

As events go, christenings are a GCSE version of weddings and funerals. They are smaller with fewer guests and don’t usually require caterers or undertakers, but we still make an effort, get a new outfit, polish the shoes and have a bit of a party.
