Best Will in the World Week (Oct 22nd–26th 2012)



During Best Will in the World Week, everybody’s encouraged to consider making a will.

Only 34% of people living in Ireland have made a will. The importance of making a will is being highlighted in the lead-up to the second Best Will in the World Week which takes place from 22nd–26th October.

During Best Will in the World Week, organised by MyLegacy, a coalition of over 70 Irish charities (of which St. Vincent’s Foundation is a member), solicitors across the country will offer will consultations to the general public for a flat fee of €50. Those interested in making or updating an existing will, are also being encouraged to leave a gift to their favourite charity in their will, after loved ones have been looked after. See for a list of participating solicitors and charities.

In direct support of St. Vincent’s, we are delighted that our own solicitor, Mangan O’Beirne, provides a free consultation for people thinking about how to deal with their estate after their death. Mangan O’Beirne, based in Donnybrook, Dublin, can be reached on 01-6684333. Callers should mention that they are connected to St. Vincent’s Hospital.
