Lisle, IL (PRWEB) February 28, 2011
During a month dedicated to celebrating Irish culture, IrishUrns.com is asking people to consider the contributions of the Irish in America with its new contest, "The Irish-American I Admire Most." Contest entrants are asked to describe the Irish-American who they believe best exemplifies perseverance, humor and/or service to the community.
According to company founder Richard Lamb, "Our nation has been enriched by the contributions of Irish immigrants, and we're always looking for ways to help generations of Irish-Americans show pride in their heritage. St. Patrick's Day gives us an opportunity to tell the stories of people who made a difference in our lives."
While the essay contest is all in good fun, IrishUrns.com is a serious business that helps today's consumers make important decisions about funeral planning. "Our Irish urns are just one of the ways we're helping people say something about the history and values that held dear in life," says Lamb.
The grand prize winner will receive an Aer Lingus gift voucher and a subscription to Ancestry.com. Additional prizes include a stone plaque and bronze medallions handcrafted in Ireland. Winners will be announced on St. Patrick's Day.
Irishurns.com is a service of Richard Lamb New Traditions, a family-owned and -operated retailer of memorial merchandise for people and pets. The company's Web site offers options that helps consumers create personalized, lasting tributes to loved ones.
