There are an increasing number of non-Irish people visiting or working in Ireland. Similarly, more Irish people are traveling to work abroad. Both situations need to repatriate deceased persons, either out of Ireland or in to Ireland.
The repatriation process can be quite involved and complex, most particularly for outward repatriations as in such instances the Funeral Director assumes the main burden of planning and coordinating at the critical aspects of repatriation. The logistics and time pressures of a repatriation both make demands on the Funeral Directors ability to professionally plan, coordinate, and complete a successful repatriation.
Fitz-Gerald's have much experience of repatriation and are very familiar with the procedures and protocols involved.
