Notes: For Irish Citizens

1. "Advice on Bringing a Deceased Person's Body to Ireland for Burial or Cremation"
( Presented in co-operation with Department of Foreign Affairs, Dublin, Eire with references to the region of Greece and Crete added by Brits in Crete).
Read up on how to handle in Crete or elsewhere in Greece the Repatriation Home of Deceased Friends or Loved-ones who are Irish nationals on our dedicated Irish information page.
2. "Preparing for an Earthquake"
It should be recognised that when you are in Greece you are in a country that suffers earth tremors from time to time. As Ireland rarely faces such eventuality, the Irish Embassy in Athens has prepared a useful guide on the subject of earthquakes. Staying calm and knowing what to do are the two essential requirements. See recent earthquake activity.
