The state funerals of Kevin Barry and nine other men executed for their part in the War of Independence.

Kevin Barry, Patrick Moran, Frank Flood, Thomas Whelan, Thomas Traynor, Patrick Doyle, Edmond Foley, Thomas Bryan, Bernard Ryan, and Patrick Maher were executed at Mountjoy Prison between November 1920 and June 1921. The men buried in the prison grounds. Eighty years later, their bodies are exhumed and they are buried at Glasnevin Cemetery.

The state funeral began with a private prayer service for the families of the ten men followed by a requiem mass at the Pro-Cathedral in Dublin.

The remains of the ten men stood on tressels above the ground where they had lain buried for 80 years just inside the granite walls that witnessed their burials four decades before.

Speaking at the ceremony at Mountjoy Prison Governor John Lonergan said it was right that the ten men should now be reburied outside the prison.

The funeral procession, led by the army Number One band, made its way from Mountjoy Prison down O'Connell Street

At the Pro-Cathedral, President Mary McAleese, Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, members of government and representatives from different religious congregations joined relatives for a requiem mass.

Following the mass, the ten coffins were escorted to the Garden of Remembrance at Parnell Square where they stood for a minute silence.

At Glasnevin Cemetery, the coffins were undraped and placed in the ground for a funeral service and graveside oration by Taoiseach Bertie Ahern.

The firing party rendered honours and the Last Post was sounded.
