Pallbearers carry Ashe's coffin, draped in a tricolour, to the graveside. Ashe had lain in state in Dublin City Hall, from where the funeral procession departed on 30 September. The cortege, which was estimated by some observers to have been three miles long, took 90 minutes to get to the cemetery, having taken a circuitous route along Lord Edward St, High St, Thomas St (the site of the execution of Robert Emmet), Bridgefoot St, the North Quays, Sackville (O’Connell) St and Phibsborough.
