Close to 100 people paid their respects at the funeral today in London of a Kerry man who died without any known relatives.
John Lynch was believed to have left Ballylongford as a small child about 70 years ago and worked in the UK as a fitter.
He died last month but despite efforts by the Irish community in London, no living relatives were found.
An appeal was made on Radio Kerry’s TalkAbout programme asking people living in London to attend John’s funeral mass.
Dermot O’Grady, who’s with the Kerry Association in London, says the service reflected John Lynch’s pride in his Kerry roots.
Dermot O’Grady says the priest during John’s funeral referenced the turnout.
