Click here for a full video of the funeral Mass and remarkable sermon delivered today at the author Maeve Binchy's funeral Mass.The world famous 72-year-old Irish writer, sadly passed away on Monday.
The video is very clear on audio despite the visuals only being of the outside of the church.If I can get a video of the mass from the inside I'll post it later.
In accordance with Ms Binchy's final wishes, the mass was simple and was concelebrated by former Dalkey parish priest Fr John McDonagh and visiting priest Fr William Stuart.
Fr Stuart spoke of Ms Binchy's warmth, generosity and love of people in his homily.
Maeve Binchy's great love of Irish traditional music is also featured and celebrated in the video from musicians Shaun Davey, Liam O'Flynn , Rita Connolly and Paddy Glackin as well as her favourite tune, the Brendan Theme at her request.
A great writer and human being !! May she rest in peace.
