Irish Examiner: Where there’s a will, there’s reassurance


Insurance company Royal London’s Let’s Talk About Death survey series sought the views of 1,000 adults on a variety of topics related to death. 

The company’s campaign aims to tackle the taboo surrounding death and encourage a dialogue on bereavement.

Noel Freeley is CEO of Royal London in Ireland. He understands why so many of us are reluctant to discuss death and dying, but argues that that reluctance is hampering the making of necessary provisions.

“While men appear to be slightly more prepared than their female counterparts, with 48% saying they have a will compared with just 34% of women, it still leaves over half the population unprepared.”
