Our repatriation team in Kenmare are here to support you


O'Connor's Funeral Directors provide an international repatriation service to and from Ireland.

We work efficiently and without delay to return your loved one to their home country to be buried or cremated. And we can handle all the paperwork and logistics involved to ensure coffins are placed in the safe hands of the funeral director on the other side.

Our skilled staff are familiar with the legal and bureaucratic requirements of various countries and specific airlines or airports. We have gained vast experience in coordinating the return of the deceased to another country and navigating families through any complicated paperwork.

O'Connor's Funeral Directors can also bring the deceased to our funeral home in Kenmare to give the family and local community a chance to share a final goodbye with their departed friend before scheduled international flights.

Our repatriation specialists are here to guide you through the process and to make arrangements for families who require assistance in bringing a loved one home to their final resting place.

In the event of an individual passing away in a foreign country, grief stricken families are faced with the logistical task of returning the deceased to their home country. An initial phone call is all it takes and we will begin procedures from there. We can organise a funeral director where the person has died, the legal requirements, transfers, paperwork and airline payment. The arrangements for the church and the cemetery can all be prepared before the deceased even reaches Ireland.

From the collection of remains to airport transfers, O'Connor's Funeral Directors will be there with you through every step of the repatriation process.

We take care of international repatriation on behalf of our clients anywhere in the world
