Dublin, Ireland (Reuters) – A Dublin man who died in March at the hands of a stranger has been laid to rest in a cemetery in his honour, the Irish government said on Tuesday.
The funeral service will be held at St Joseph’s Cemetery in Dublin, which will also house a shrine dedicated to his memory.
St Joseph’s Church in the Dublin suburb of Rathdown, which has a population of around 5,000, is the burial place of several Irish nationals who have died in Ireland.
In 2014, a woman was buried there in memory of her son, who was shot dead by a police officer who responded to a domestic dispute.
In 2016, the bodies of two people were found in the cemetery and a third died in a fire.
Last month, a funeral procession to honour the life of the man who was fatally shot by a Dublin policeman was stopped by a man with a cane, who had been arrested by gardai.
