The Great and the Good gather at the graveside of the little man in the top hat with the gentle smile, as many of us will remember the late President Seán T. O'Kelly who died in 1966. Dignitaries of the church are there aplenty to honour a man whose commitment to the church was always evident. His political friends are present but I find it hard to identify any from the other parties but that might be a lack of knowledge of who might have been there. Searching through the crowd should make an interesting day?
