Because Saying Goodbye Should Be as Unique as Your Favorite Pair of Shoes

Welcome to Wake 2.0, where we blend the best of the old with a dash of the new, creating memorial experiences that are as unique and vibrant as the lives we celebrate.
You know, traditional Irish wakes have been around for centuries, and there’s a good reason for that. According to a fascinating study by Ulster University, these customs are pretty effective at helping folks cope with grief. The study found that only 10.9% of grieving people in Ireland experienced prolonged grief disorder (PGD), compared to a whopping 15.3% in the UK. The secret sauce? The communal nature of Irish wakes, where the whole community rallies together in support. 

What is Wake 2.0?
Wake 2.0 is our way of taking the cherished traditions of the Irish wake and giving them a modern, personalized twist. Think of it as a chic upgrade, like swapping out your old sneakers for a pair of Louboutins. 

Personalized Memorial Spaces: Gone are the days of cookie-cutter services. We create bespoke memorial spaces that reflect the personality and passions of your loved one. Whether they were a world traveller, an avid gardener, or fashionista, we’ll make sure their essence shines through.
  • Digital Legacy: Our digital memorials allow family and friends to share stories, photos, and videos online, creating a virtual scrapbook of memories that lasts forever. It’s like Instagram, but for the heart.
  • Sustainable Practices: For those who want to leave a lighter footprint on the earth, we offer eco-friendly options. Think biodegradable urns, green burials, and sustainable materials. Mother Earth will thank you!
  • Food and Beverage: Sharing grief and mourning a loss while celebrating a life with favorite foods and beverages of the deceased is another way we bring the old customs of the Irish Wake into the modern day. The sharing of food and drink fosters a sense of community and solidarity still to this day.
At Muldowney Memorials, we believe that saying goodbye shouldn’t be a hushed whisper—it should be a rallying cry of love, laughter, and shared memories. Our wakes are still a time for family, friends, and the community to come together, but we’ve added a few extra touches to make the experience even more special.

Imagine a space filled with personal mementoes, vibrant photos, and digital screens playing videos of your loved one’s greatest moments. Picture a gathering where stories are shared, tears are shed, and laughter rings out over a delicious spread of food and drinks. And yes, we still embrace the beautiful tradition of the open coffin, allowing everyone to say their personal goodbyes in a way that feels right for them.

Remember, every farewell is unique—just like every heartbeat. At Muldowney Memorials, we’re here to ensure that your goodbye is as unforgettable as the life you’re celebrating. So, let’s raise a glass (or a cup of tea) to the ones we’ve loved and lost, and embrace the future of farewells with open arms and open hearts.
