Does anyone else think the stations of the cross in the background look like thieves stealing a crucifix?

Dean Maguire who died in Dublin N7 crash
And in one tribute paid to Dean Maguire during the ceremony, a woman said: 'Sorry for the language father - rest in peace you f***ing legend.'


A screwdriver and a torch were among items brought to the altar to remember a convicted burglar at his funeral mass this morning.

And in one tribute paid to Dean Maguire during the ceremony, a woman said: "Sorry for the language father - rest in peace you f***ing legend."


Criminal Maguire, 29, died in a car crash with two other associates as they drove down the wrong side of the N7 after they fled gardai last week, smashing head-on into a truck.

The dad-of-two's funeral mass took place at St Mary's Priory church in Tallaght, Dublin this morning.

Before the mass got underway, wreaths were laid at the altar with the words: Daddy, babby, husband, son and mad man.

A poster remembering Maguire was also put up which read: "RIP Dean. You know the score, get on the floor, don't be funny, give me the money."


Dean 'Deano' Maguire
Symbols were brought to the altar remembering his life and they included a torch, a screwdriver, a reg plate, cigarettes, a lighter, his Canada Goose jacket, and a bottle of bulmers.

Others included his cap, phone, a memorial card for his brother, keys, sunglasses, red bull and scratch cards.



A woman said every memory she had of was "funny" and recalled the night of a christening.

She said: "We were in a disco but you got so drunk you thought you were in a cul de sac. You really were a character."

And she added: "Sorry for the language father - rest in peace you f***ing legend.".

A man told how he was "lost without" him.




And he said: "Every memory, we're going to cherish for the mad and crazy you.

"Your little girls are going to grow up and never, ever forget you. That's our promise brother. How could we let them down without telling them all about you? I'll think of you after when I don't know what to do, because I know Dean, you will help pull us through.

"We had some mad memories that will last my whole life that we put in the f*** it bucket and laugh the whole night through.

"I'm going to say goodbye now, it's the hardest thing I've ever had to do. Sleep easy brother, life will never be the same without you."

Another man spoke of the memories he made with Maguire.

He said: "I have no words for you - I can't believe you're gone forever. You have my heart broke.

"I could write a book on the memories we have together, the good and the bad but I won't mention them because you can't get flipped but I could for most of them. You know the score brother."



He added that he will look out for Maguire's wife and children before adding: "Your legacy will live on forever. You will never be forgotten.

"Number one Deano Maguire, rest easy my brother."

Maguire's sister also told the church: "To my brother, to my friend, you can't choose your family so I guess I was lucky to have a brother like you.

"We fussed, we teased, we had fights, we had fun, and always in my heart I knew I would do anything for you.

"We forged a bond that time cannot erase and shared a secret smile that the world will never understand. You can never know how proud I am to tell the world that's my brother.

"But even prouder to say that's my friend. Dean, my darling brother, I will always love you and miss you forever. Until we meet again."

Earlier in the mass, the priest said there was "such sadness and heartbreak for all of his family".

And he explained that the fact Maguire's coffin had to remain closed added to their grief.

He told the mourners: "We think of his dear parents and his wife and children whom he was taken so suddenly and quickly, without a chance to say goodbye.

"And then even of course the very fact his coffin had to remain closed - it doesn't really give a chance to grieve properly or to see him as he was.

"They can only rely on their memories and that makes their sadness and their grief all the harder to bear.

"Our hearts go out to you all and I know all of your family are heartbroken at your loss and your grief."

After the mass, tearful family and friends gathered around the coffin before it was brought out from the church to Tina Turner's song, Simply The Best.(ironic?)

Maguire's remains were then brought to Newlands Cross Cemetery, where he was laid to rest.

Maguire perished in the BMW car alongside Graham Taylor and Carl Freeman on the night of Wednesday, June 6.

The driver of the lorry they crashed into is recovering from his injuries.


The three dead men had over 200 convictions between them.

Maguire had over 25 convictions, including for burglary.


He was wanted by UK police after he fled from a Hollesley Bay prison in England on October 17, 2018 but was never recaptured. He went on to commit more offences.

The trio worked for a notorious Tallaght-based burglary gang.

Taylor's funeral takes place on Saturday and Freeman is being laid to rest on Monday.

Just think about this for a minute.....that thieving scumbag who got sizzled is actually looked up to and revered by his peers and is a role model for his kids and family.

A whole different world they live in.

Surely, as they claim, they are a separate entity from indigenous Irish people they would have their own language that one could learn on Rosetta stone or Babelfish?

Shelta appears to be pigeon English or pigeon Irish.

Finally, for a group that claims to be around for centuries, you'd think they'd have their own traditional dance. Nowhere that I've searched is their footage of them in their traditional garb or dancing that's been passed down the generations.

Could it be the lack of rhythm?

If they don't live by the rule of law and only live by their own laws, then perhaps they should set up a island all to themselves somewhere in the middle of the atlantic ocean.

My heart goes out to the truck driver who's truck  they crashed into.
