Meet Our Corporate Supporters

Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services is proud to work with leading organisations to deliver mutually beneficial partnerships.

We are happy to work with companies of all shapes and sizes and i.e. all support is hugely welcome.

Founding Partner:

Our Founding Partner, Massey Bros. Funeral Directors have committed to supporting Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services over a 5 year period. Their commitment will have a lasting impact on our organisation.

Massey Bros. Funeral Directors

As the number of people over 65 in Ireland is set to almost triple in the next 30 years, we know that we will need to provide even more specialist facilities and services for another generation of our patients and their families. In 2016, we embarked on our most ambitious fundraising project in our history: to bring our specialist palliative care services to even more people in their homes and to develop 36 new state-of-the-art single palliative care rooms in Harold’s Cross to ensure privacy, dignity and professional excellence at end of life.

Massey Bros. Funeral Directors share our values and ethos of proving the best in excellent and person centred loving care and in 2016 the company embarked on an exciting five year Founding Partner relationship with Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services.

This founding partnership, the first for Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services, is a commitment of over €100,000 over five years.

“We are hugely grateful to Massey Bros. Funeral Directors, who as our first Founding Partner are playing a vital leadership role in helping us to realise our vision of providing, with loving care, the highest quality person centred hospice palliative care in South Dublin and Wicklow. I am truly grateful for their support,”

Audrey Houlihan, CEO, Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services.

“Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services is totally aligned with our ethos of Honouring Life. It is a natural alliance for us as the care and professional support they give people at end of life is mirrored in our approach to treat everyone who comes to us, and their families, with dignity, respect and compassion. We know that this is an extremely difficult time for people and it is heartening that the new build we are supporting will ensure the best of care at this stage in people’s lives. We are delighted that the care echoes our own,”

Robert Maguire, General Manager, Massey Bros. Funeral Directors

Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services was voted as the BDO Staff Nominated Charity in memory of their colleague Eoin Fennessy (1983-2016). Eoin was a key member of the BDO tax group and wider BDO team. In 2010, Eoin was diagnosed with cancer which he fought with exceptional courage and dignity and through the tremendous care and facilities provided by Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services. In memory of Eoin, BDO wanted to do something to help Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services.

In 2017 they held the BDO Abseil challenge which involved their team experiencing the ultimate adrenaline rush and abseiling from the roof of Croke Park! In September 2018 they kept their activity grounded but nevertheless as challenging with a fantastic BDO Cyclathon at the top of Grafton street.

Kilternan Cemetery Park

Kilternan Cemetery Park embarked on an exciting relationship with Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services a couple of years ago. Based on a mutual benefit and a joined vision to improve the lives of our patients, the partnership is helping to ensure a better quality of life for patients and their families.

Permanent TSB

Permanent TSB chose us as their charity partner in 2017/2018 and supported us a number of ways, including staff fundraising and volunteering. Having a positive impact in the community is important to Permanent TSB and supporting Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services was a great fit for them. The team at Permanent TSB were very passionate in partnering and supporting us and raised a significant amount of funds through the work of the Bank’s Staff Charities Fund. They also got involved in volunteering and helped with selling pins on Sunflower Days and preparing the gardens in advance of Little Flower of Life in Blackrock Hospice.
