Never Ask A Newsreader To Speak At A Funeral

A funeral is a time to honor and remember a loved one, while also providing an opportunity to celebrate the life they lived. While it’s common for family members, friends or clergy to deliver eulogies at funerals, asking someone who is a news reader to speak may not be the best idea.

In this video skit by Foil, Arms and Hog an Irish grandson delivers the eulogy at this grandfathers funeral, unfortunately he is a newsreader. Another hilarious video by this trio.

Eulogies serve to remember the person who died in a positive light, and provide an opportunity to talk about how they made a difference in the lives of family, friends and their community. While newsreaders are often skilled communicators, delivering a eulogy is likely to be too emotionally taxing for them. A better option is to ask a family member, friend, clergy or funeral conductor to deliver the eulogy.

You might also consider choosing one person from each area of the deceased’s life to speak on a certain theme. For example, you could ask an immediate family member, a business colleague, and a member of a religious group, club, or organization to deliver eulogies. If you’d like, you should feel comfortable asking people to speak on a particular topic, or leaving the topic of the eulogy up to the speaker.

At most funerals, eulogies and other tributes constitute the bulk of the service. Think about how many people you would like to have deliver eulogies, and how long you would like the service to last. In some cases, there will be many people who would like to eulogize the person who died, which can be both a wonderful experience and also make for a very long service. If you’d like to limit the number of speakers, it is entirely fair to ask people not to speak in order to keep the service to a certain length.

Religious Considerations

In many religions, the eulogy is delivered by the clergy member who is officiating the service. In many cases, a religious eulogy will focus on the role of God and faith in the life of the person who died, rather than any secular accomplishments.

If you’d like to have other people speak about the person who died you might have people do that at a reception after the service.

Why is a walking tour of Kilkenny a good idea?

Kilkenny, located in Ireland’s sunny Southeast, is one of the country’s most vibrant and lively cities. Not only does it have some incredible attractions like Kilkenny Castle, but its winding streets are lined with charming pubs, unique eateries, and vibrant shops. Exploring all that Kilkenny has to offer is best done on foot, and a walking tour of the city is an excellent way to take in its sights, sounds, and culture.
