The funeral of Killarney man Thomas Dooley, took place in Tullamore yesterday (Thursday).

Dooley, from Hazlewood Drive, was fatally stabbed on Wednesday last week after being attacked while attending a funeral at Rath Cemetery, Tralee.

His wife also received serious injuries in the attack.

The father of seven and grandfather was buried in Clonminch Cemetery following funeral Mass at the Church of the Assumption in the County Offaly town on Thursday.

There was a large garda presence at the funeral including members of the Armed Support Unit and the Garda Mounted (horseback) Unit.

The Garda investigation is ongoing.

“We want to speak to everyone who attended the funeral of Bridget O’Brien last Wednesday [October 5],”Superintendent Flor Murphy told the Killarney Advertiser.

A total of four people have been arrested in relation to the incident. Two of them have been charged in connection with his death including Mr Dooley's brother Patrick Dooley, of Arbutus Grove, Killarney.

Thomas Dooley (41), of Carrigrohane Road, Cork, a cousin and namesake of the late Mr Dooley, has also been charged.

A third man, arrested earlier this week, was released without charge.

A fourth man, arrested on Wednesday, was released without charge this morning (Friday). A file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Gardai in Tralee were operating checkpoints near Rath Cemetery in Tralee on Wednesday of this week as part of their extensive investigation into the incident.

“There is an awful lot going on there, shops, businesses and we are anxious to speak to anyone who was in the immediate vicinity at the time last Wednesday morning,” Superintendent Murphy added.
