Sean South's Funeral
One of the biggest funerals ever to be held in Limerick was Sean South’s. Thousands marched behind the hearse, several thousand more lined the streets . The pictures on this page and on page 17 give a good indication of the amount of people who turned up to pay their respects. The picture on this page shows the cortege passing the old Limerick Motor Works while on page 17 the funeral wends it way up Mulgrave Street and reached the gates of the cemetery as the cortege still passes through Newtown Mahon.
