A Weasel Funeral

The following item is reproduced in full as it appeared in The Tyrone Constitution of 10 September 1954.

“A passing lorry killed a weasel near the residence of Mr Hughie McGready, Mount Charles, Co Donegal. Messrs Gary Burke, Eugene Burke and Eamon Kelly were working nearby. They noticed the dead weasel on the road, but in ten minutes over fifty weasels had gathered to remove the remains.

“One weasel dragged the dead one away and was followed by some fifty ‘mourners’ each marching two abreast.”
