Funeral of Shane MacGowan: Crowds pay tribute as procession moves through Dublin

Wife of the late MacGowan, Victoria Mary Clarke, said “it’s incredible” that so many people will turn out at the Pogue legend’s funeral.
In a touching tribute to MacGowan on Instagram, Clarke said “Shane hated funerals”.

“Tomorrow is Shane’s funeral which is hard to believe and probably I won’t believe it for a while. Shane hated funerals and he refused to go to them with a few rare exceptions.

“So it’s incredible to think that so many people want to come to his and that so many beautiful people are pouring their hearts and souls into making it magnificent and magical and memorable for him and for us who are left behind.”
