Sun, 21 Jan 2018 21:40:00 +0000

Three days after he was found on rocks at White Strand, after gardai had done their work and the State pathologist had finished with him, Baby John was buried. It should have been a bleak affair. There was no family to mark the tragic baby's passing. The only people expected to turn up to the graveside at Cahersiveen were a few gardai and the local undertaker, Tom Cournane. Cournane decided that the baby deserved better. He asked his then 15-year-old daughter, Catherine, would she organise a couple of her school friends to come to the funeral. It was Monday, April 16, 1984, a day Catherine has never forgotten.
