Bridget Carlin, Galway

Bridget Carlin lives in Portumna, Co. Galway and has been a Humanist celebrant since November 2010.

Raised as a Roman Catholic she became an atheist in her teens. Bridget’s philosophy is that each person should take personal responsibility for their own moral philosophy. “We have one life & we have to make the best of it. When we die, like all other living things, we decompose and our atoms, abandoning any loyalty they may have had to us go on to become components of other entities. Consequently the only afterlife is the influence we may have had on people surviving us. Finding the Humanist Association was great, great to find like minded, amusing & challenging people to explore issues with.”

Bridget studied English Literature and is an avid reader. Mother to two children who are now in their mid twenties, her work has been in education, advocacy, social & environmental campaigning and child care. She has always worked on projects that she was committed to and passionate about – to use Bernard Shaw’s phrase she has always done ‘useful work’.

Bridget prefers to conduct ceremonies in counties Galway, Limerick, Clare, Tipperary, Offaly, Roscommon, Westmeath & Mayo.

Bridget has some availability for 2018 but is still available for Funerals and Naming’s.
