Rev. Áine Moloney, ordained in 2020
Me: Daughter, spouse, mother, friend, retired Special Ed. teacher, writer and poet. Free spirit. Lifelong student with many professional qualifications. Lover of life. Explorer of Celtic Ways. As Rev. Aine, I work with deep reverence for all lives, beliefs, cultures and sexual orientations. My “cathedral”is not a building or institution - rather it is that kind place of interconnection in truth and trust. Within this sacred space we find encouragement to express ourselves with open minds and hearts.We discover ways of being that are rooted in love, and blossom in joy.
You: I believe we are more the same than we are different. When crafting your ceremony, I bring my creativity, wisdom, and my capable, fun,compassionate, authentic presence to my work. We can co-create what you truly deserve- the best possible expression of who you are as you mark your special occasion.
.On the journey of life, sometimes we hit a difficult patch It is a great privilege for me to provide a one-to- one Anam Cara- soul friend- service, in person and online,to support you at these times. And with grace and grit, ease your way back towards your ways of joy.

It is hard to put into words how much it meant to us to have such a personal wedding ceremony. The amount of work you put in, and your patience combined with a gentle push to get it exactly right when we were not always focused was amazing! The whole point of having our wedding on the farm was to have a less formal, relaxed celebration. Our ceremony truly set the tone for the day. So many guests commented on how professional, yet relaxed you were- and there were lots of comments too about your amazing style”
With many thanks, and lots of love, Grainne and Michael
Our celebrant, ÁineMoloney was exactly the right person to help us. She spoke to Sinéad’s family and partner, always mindful of the immense grief they were feeling.
She listened to everyone’s opinions and wishes and so organised a beautiful graveside ceremony that brought together family and friends.
Áine presented readings for the family to choose from, she liaised with the staff at the graveyard and worked tirelessly to ensure the ceremony reflected our Sinead, and was very meaningful for us, her utterly bereaved family. Every little detail was considered and the family felt they had done all they could. She led the ceremony with strength that held us in our saddest of moments and with total respect. I would highly recommend Áine as an extremely capable and warm Celebrant for any occasion.

Aine taught our son for 2 years in his special school. Our son has Down Syndrome and is on the autistic spectrum , consequently he suffers from severe anxiety at times. Aine established a great rapport with him and understood his complex emotional needs . Her patience and persistence helped him through a difficult time in his life and we will always be grateful to her for this.
More recently our son, who is now aged 21,has suffered a great deal of sadness and anxiety following the death of a close family member. Aine has provided phenomenal emotional support and counselling for him both in person and remotely. Aine's sessions with our son tacilitated him to express his feelings and worries in a way that he could not have done without her. Aine did this by exploring his best way of communication to break down his concerns into smaller issues and to give him the tools to work through his worries and sadness in a way that was very manageable for him. She has developed coping strategies for him that are invaluable and for which we will be eternally grateful. We and our son also appreciate greatly that he is treated as a young adult by Aine and respected as such .
