A Cork city councillor says he received a death threat after criticising large attendances at a Traveller funeral.
Ken O'Flynn hit out after more than 100 people went to a funeral in his area recently.
He claimed social-distancing rules were not being enforced for Traveller events.
The councillor says he received a death threat shortly after making the comments in a radio interview.
"I received a call from a United States number. The call was quite nasty and a lot of expletives were used," he said.
"I resulted in putting down the phone. Twelve telephone calls later, I took another call from that number and I was threatened with my life, told they were coming around to put me in the ground."
