Fraudsters at the funeral mass David Bolanda in Nurney today have heard of the man with the greatest heart for anyone who knew him.
The assembled church of the Holy See Church can not keep all those who came to pay respect to their father with great love for motorcycles who died of the wound fever received at Athy in the early morning hours of Thursday, November 1st.
The people laid both sides of the road leading to the Mass Church, which was held at 12 noon, and his family described it as "the celebration of his life".
The community has heard about a man who loved the Western Boland family, his work, and his young son, Cormac (8), who will live in his similarity and his permanent legacy.
David's model of motor bicycles was taken to the altar as gifts with Kildare's shirt with a company logo to show how difficult it was to work and picture one of the many gatherings of the Boland family.
Parish priest Adrian Carbery said they were there to celebrate David's life. He said that the goodness of the community shone for the Boland family, his parents Lily and Peter, the sister of Cathrion, and Mary and his son Cormac (8), while struggling with David's violent and terrible death. He said the community was "shaken by the core" of Mr. Boland's death.
"His loved ones are destroyed while facing the most horrible moments of their lives, but the great flood of generosity and love of their neighbors and families keeps them from their terrible deaths."
Fools cried as a coffin was taken from the church to the cemetery. Local club bikers stood outside the church during the service as a sign of respect for one of their former members.
Later he laid to rest in the St. Brigid, Nurney.
