At Desmond Maguire Funeral Directors we pride ourselves on our high standard of personal care and attention to detail. All our staff are fully trained in all aspects of funeral service so that families in their time of need can feel at ease and comfortable with all funeral arrangements. Our company policy is that the member of staff who makes the funeral arrangements will be in sole charge of overseeing the funeral ensuring that the all details are adhered to faultlessly.

All our funeral directors are dressed impeccably with top hats and frock coats. We pace away all funeral corteges from the family home, Churches and our funeral homes. Our funeral homes are furnished to a high standard with a tasteful blend of modern and traditional. We have reception areas, private arrangement offices and chapels of rest and service rooms in all our funeral homes. Our funeral homes are ideally located to serve the local community.

We are members of the Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors.( S.A.I.F.)

OUR STORY

When Desmond Maguire started washing funeral cars at 15 years old, it didn’t take him long to notice how important a good funeral could be for a grieving family. Inspired to help those in need, Desmond took a job as a funeral service operative when he finished school. He gradually worked his way through the ranks to become a funeral director and in June 2006, he decided to open his own funeral home, aiming to deliver the very best funeral care.
 
A funeral is such a personal thing, and there are so many complex emotions to be given due attention, that to be chosen so often is a real honour and a privilege. It’s a constant source of pride and humility for Desmond that so many families entrust their funerals into his company’s care.

Traditional Funeral Convoy

Desmond Maguire Funeral Directors have a fleet of traditional funeral vehicles and experienced chauffeurs. Our dress code is traditional (top hat and frock coats) as is the funeral processions by paging away from the family home, the church or chapel or our funeral home.

Our simple funeral service includes our hearse. Our funeral limousines are available should they be required. We include a limousine with our Traditional Funeral service as it is traditional for immediate family to follow on behind the hearse from the home, to the service, then to the final resting place.

We can provide additional funeral vehicles should they be required. We can also cater to floral tributes for the hearsette, or arrange for alternative funeral vehicles such as a horse-drawn hearse carriage.
