My Legacy is an umbrella group of 70 Irish charities asking people to remember a charity they care about in their will, once all other important personal decisions have been made.
As part of the process of making your will with John A Sinnott Solicitors, we ask you to make a list of everything you own i.e. your assets. So, for example, your house, your car, money in the bank etc. But many people forget about their online assets. You should consider this important element of your life.

If you’re driving this weekend, the roads are sure to be busy and so extra care and attention is needed. Here is a reminder some of the basic regulations we must adhere to, to help us say safe on the roads.
