Priest at criminal’s funeral: The most disturbing liturgy I’ve attended

A parish priest has described the funeral for Dean Maguire, one of the three men killed in a road crash last week, as the ‘most disturbing liturgy I was ever at’.

Chaotic scenes, in which a small number of mourners for Dean Maguire, 29, blocked off roads and intimidated members of the public on the way to St Mary’s Priory church in Tallaght on Friday, have sparked widespread outrage.

Mr Maguire was killed, alongside his friends Graham Taylor, 31, and Carl Freeman, 26, when the car they were travelling in crashed into a truck on the N7. The men, who had over 200 convictions between them and were part of a notorious criminal gang, had been travelling purposely on the wrong side of the road to avoid being captured by gardaí.

During the funeral service for the father-of-two, friends of the ‘career criminal’ placed a torch and screwdriver as remembrance gifts beside his coffin. A professionally printed banner featuring his face on the altar also read: ‘You know the score, get on the floor, don’t be funny, show me the money.’

Mourners who made eulogies said Maguire would not be forgotten. “Sorry for the language, Father – rest in peace, you fucking legend,” said one woman.

I don't see what's so wrong about celebrating a man's life and career. A lad at work died and they made a floral arrangement that looked like a plane, and people attended in uniform. If anything, this is less tacky.

Would be a laugh to keep messing with his grave every night to piss off the rest of them. Sounds like a fun hobby actually.

I remember a period around 2011 where there was a marked increase in gypsy activity in my native Hull, particularly the North Hull Estate and Orchard Park areas. On one midnight drive, I was even stopped dead in my tracks as half a dozen horses ran out into the road in front of me playing with one another. This went on for several months, there seemed to be more and more young lads being pulled along on carriages made of bike wheels and park benches.

A few friends and I were heading out one day to go for a hike around west of the town, and I happened to attempt to take a road going past Cottingham Cemetery. The road was completely packed with people, parking their vehicles on both sides of the road, people's driveways, the pavement and grass, and heading towards the cemetery. It took a good five minutes to even meander the old 2002 Clio through the throng.

I learned from a mate the next day that some gypsy granddad had passed away, and relatives from all over the country had descended on the area for the funeral. I've had a google around and couldn't find any record of it, but I'd guess there were a thousand people there at least, from the busyness of the road and my passing glance into the cemetery on the drive past. It was pretty remarkable.

We had a similar thing last year near my work; a full procession of cars honking their horns, and teenagers on quadbikes, for nearly an hour, all driving past to mourn the passing of some similarly lovable rogues, and those weren't even gypsies as far as I know.
