This morning.

St Joseph’s Church, Glasthule, County Dublin.

Hundreds of people have attended the funeral in Dublin of an Irish man who died in England without any known family.

Joseph Tuohy, who was originally from Co Tipperary, died on 11 July aged 83 in London.

His friend of many years Brian Boylan, whom he met in the 1970s in London in a homeless hostel, and local parishioner Margaret Browne, founder of Friends of the Forgotten Irish, led the mourners.

A lone piper led people into St Joseph’s Church in Glasthule, Co Dublin.

Inside the church there was standing room only at the Requiem Mass.
