JUST 34 PER CENT of adults living in Ireland have made a will, according to research conducted by Amárach Research on behalf of MyLegacy.

According to the results, people are more likely to make a will as they get older with some 82 over cent of those aged over 65 saying they had made a will, The Sunday Business Post reports.

The research coincides with MyLegacy’s second annual ‘Best Will in the World Week’ which aims to emphasise the importance of making a will and also raise awareness of legacy donations.
