Irish Hospice Foundation Archives
1986 -2016  

Founded by Mary Redmond in 1986, the Irish Hospice Foundation began with the aim to extend availability of hospice services across the country, promote awareness of the hospice approach and develop research and education.
In its early years IHF was instrumental in raising funds for Our Lady's Hospice Dublin and in fundraising for the establishment of the second Dublin Hospice, which became St Francis Hospice in Raheny. 
The Irish Hospice Foundation grew to develop programmes in education, research and bereavement services. They brought  hospice principles into acute hospitals and residential care settings and worked to extend palliative care to non malignant conditions. IHF also developed a strong fundraising base with national and international fundraising projects, events and initiatives, many endorsed by some of Irelands most well known figures.
