Liveline Wednesday 14 August 2013
A new directive issued by Bishop of Meath Dr Michael Smith means that funeral eulogies including songs, poems and readings, that do not fall within religious guidelines, could be banned.
The guidelines would apply in Bishop Smith's diocese which includes most of counties Meath and Westmeath, plus parts of Offaly, Longford, Louth, Dublin and Cavan. Liveline listeners explained why they believe eulogies are important for family and friends at funerals. Other listeners agreed with Bishop’s Smiths comments saying that some eulogies were completely inappropriate.
