When to publish an Acknowledgement?
 
In many parts of Ireland, the Acknowledgement is published approx. one month after death, to coincide with the Month's Mind.
 
 
In other parts of Ireland, the Acknowledgement is published approx. one year after death, to coincide with the First Anniversary.

 

Anniversary

Anniversary notices can be published every year, to coincide with a loved one's date of death, to remember their passing. Often a Mass or other gathering will be held to mark this occasion.

As well as showing in the Family Notices section, a link to the Month's Mind notice can also be displayed on the death notice for up to 5 weeks (shown  here), so that people viewing the death notice can immediately see when and where this will take place - a great help for those who may have missed the funeral and want to attend the Month’s Mind, so it’s a good idea to publish the Month’s Mind notice as soon after publishing the death notice as possible, when viewing of the death notice is highest.
