An Irish gangster who died in a car accident is sent away in a golden coffin

The death of an influential personage is a blow not only to her loved ones and family, but also to the people she inspired or cared for. The death of an Irish gangster is gaining a lot of attention online because of the way he was honored and buried. According to media reports, the Irish gangster died in a car accident and was buried in a golden coffin. His name was Stephen O’Reilly and he was the father of one child. He lived at Beech Park West in Athlone, County Westmeath, Ireland. On May 20, Stephen was involved in a car accident in County Offaly, where he was pronounced dead at the scene. Reports also indicate that he was a violent and dangerous criminal, convicted of theft and other serious crimes.

His close friends described him as “a guy with a heart of gold”, so to convey this to others, his body was locked up and carried in a gold coffin to a hearse while Tina Turner’s Simply the Best played in the background. Some clips showed six men and a woman placing a coffin through the front window of their home. At the same time, a man’s voice was heard saying, “He’s coming home the way he left.”

Stephen O’Reilly’s funeral mass was held at Our Lady Queen of Peace Church in Coosan, Athlone, Ireland. Flowers were laid at the deceased gangster’s funeral, which consisted of images of white powder with the words “No Comment” written on them and a topless photo of the man himself. His photo read: “The real Pablo. The one and only gangster.” Reilly.”

Some of Stephen’s close friends paid tribute to him on social media. The first user said: “It feels like a scary dream.” Another added: “I literally can’t come to terms with this or even think it’s true.” And a third said: “I literally can’t come to terms with this or even think it’s true.”
