Hi I’m Dan

I am a member of Entheos and an HSE Registered Solemniser.

Being HSE registered solemnisers means I can take care of the ‘legals’ for weddings as well as create ceremonies. It would be my great joy to work with you to create a personal ceremony to mark any and all of your life’s milestones.
I feel that because of my own experiences of life, love, loss, grief, and joy, I can create a meaningful and personal service.

I ‘m from Cashel in Tipperary and have lived in Limerick for over 40 years now. I had a traditional Irish Catholic upbringing, so I have a great respect for and understanding of the rituals and traditions I was reared with, but I’ve always known there are many paths outside the traditional. I treasure the beauty of our, and others’, ancient traditions, and I wanted to find a path that felt authentic and soulful to me, without the rules and hierarchy I was accustomed to. I am so delighted to be able to offer a deeply meaningful alternative to traditional religious options.

The main thing you need to know about me is that I’m a glass-half-full person, outgoing, and love meeting new people and hearing their stories.

I am passionate about choice, equality, diversity, inclusivity, and social justice, let’s celebrate it all!!!

I perform non-denominational, agnostic, atheist, spiritual, same-faith, no-faith, and interfaith ceremonies with equal enthusiasm. I have no agenda about the content of your ceremony, other than that it is all about you.

In addition to wedding ceremonies, it is my great joy to create and hold ceremonies to mark all of life’s milestones, from baby naming to funerals and everything in between. It is my privilege and joy to create ceremonies that are as unique and varied as the people I work with, and I love to bring your ideas to life!
