This just grim.
Radio Kerry reports:
County Councillor Johnny Healy-Rae denies his family attend the funerals of people they do not know. The councillor was responding to claims from Fianna Fáil County Councillor Michael Cahill, who said politicians attending the funerals of people they do not know is despicable.
…Councillor Healy-Rae says, while he does not send out funeral packages himself, he apologises to those who received the packages and did not want them.
The funeral packages the Healy-Raes send out consists of a mass card, a poem and information about entitlements.
