Launch of Erin’s Call – A Global Social Diaspora Initiative

Erin International has recently launched a new social initiative called “Erin’s Call”, the aim of which is to help reconnect members of the Irish diaspora worldwide.

The idea for Erin’s Call came about after the team at Erin International worked on several high profile cases where next of kin needed to be traced.

One such case was that of an Irish-born gentleman, John Joseph Gill, who passed away in the UK with no known next of kin. An appeal was placed by the local council to trace Mr. Gill’s next of kin, and it was not until Erin International became involved that close kin were found.

Another similar case was that of Nicholas and Hilary Smith, an elderly couple who passed way in Co. Tipperary. Their remains lay undiscovered at their home for almost 18 months, and when an appeal was placed by Gardai and Interpol, Erin International located the nearest next of kin.

“Given our specialist skillset, we have decided to launch this initiative to help Irish families and members of the diaspora worldwide” stated Erin International CEO, Padraic Grennan. “We have seen first-hand the impact our service offering can have on peoples’ lives, and Erin’s Call is a way for us to build on those past successes and continue helping where we can”.
