Mr Ryan died on Sunday aged 90. “We celebrate a wonderful life of a great man and a great politician,” said Fr O’Byrne. Mr Ryan’s daughter Bláthnaid, together with daughter-in-law Fiona and Aisling, sang On Eagle’s Wings (Joncas). There was no eulogy but Mr Ryan’s coffin left the church to the strains of Going Home (Dvorák/Fisher). Mr Ryan was buried in Newland’s Cross Cemetery.
