Leaving a Legacy to An Tairseach
When you remember An Tairseach in your will, however big or small the amount, you’re helping with the continuation of the mission and aims of An Tairseach.
A straight forward legacy can be made either by will or by codicil. We recommend that you always consult your Solicitor who will be able to advise you in light of your own particular circumstances.
If you are considering making a provision for An Taisreach in your will, after you have safeguarded the security of your family and loved ones, we are very grateful. Your will is a private document but if you choose to inform us of your intentions, that gives us the opportunity to thank you for your support and keep you informed about developments in An Tairseach. Any information you provide will be treated in the strictest confidence and is not binding in any way. Even if you are only at the very early stages of planning, we would be very happy to answer any questions you might have.
If you are considering a gift, or if you would like more information about how your legacy can make a difference you may contact An Tairseach directly:
