Why worry about not having made your will?

Clonakilty Solicitor Flor McCarthy gets you started on making a will.

FlorYou know you should do it but there are so many other things screaming at you to get done first.  And no one (apart from your conscience) is nagging you to make your will.

You’ll get around to it when you have time or as soon as you get some of the more pressing stuff out of the way first.  After all it’s a really big job and you’ve got to clear space in your life and get your head around it before you can get to it; don’t you?

The truth is you don’t. And you shouldn’t let the things that matter most be sacrificed in favour of the things that matter least.

By making a will you are protecting the people that are most important to you from the very worst that could happen to them: losing you. It’s easy and straightforward once you break it down into a few very simple steps and you get the right person to help you.

You don’t need an inventory of everything you’ve ever owned or an audit of your entire life; you just need to know a few very basic things about the process, make a few choices about what you’d want to happen if anything happened to you and then let someone who knows what they’re doing do all the hard work for you.

There are hundreds of smart things that I could tell you in an article about wills, but there really is only one thing that you need to know and you probably know it already: we all should have one and we wouldn’t be able to forgive ourselves if we left a mess behind for the people that really matter to us just because we didn’t think it was important enough to get around to it.

There is only one thing you need to know about wills: you need to make a start about making one.

The Cast of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ are on their way to the All-Ireland finals, having won 26 awards, including five best of Festivals, at the Amateur Drama League of Ireland annual three act festivals. The play ‘No Man’s Land, by Harold Pinter, the Nobel Prize Winning Author is directed by Jennifer Williams.

One last opportunity to view this multi award winning play at Skibbereen Town Hall, on Saturday 14th of April, before the finals.

Having met by chance in a pub, two aging writers continue a long night of drinking and reminiscing in a stately London home. As the night wears on, their conversation wanders through memories long forgotten or invented. Is their encounter real or a delusion? Are they strangers or do they share a past history? When unexpected guests intrude upon an increasingly surreal evening, the atmosphere quickly changes from friendly to threatening, and the encounter becomes a game of survival.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by emailing schulldramagroup@gmail.com
