The Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr Tony Fitzgerald, joined staff from Cork City Council, councillors and friends to form a guard of honour as the funeral cortege for Dave Roche passed Cork City Hall today.
The rainbow flag of the LGBT movement flew at half-mast at Cork City Hall in his honour.
Mr Roche was a founder member of the Cork LGBT Pride Festival, the CEO of the Cork Gay Project, a board member of the National LGBT Helpline, and a driving force behind the Yes Equality Cork campaign and LGBT Awareness Week.
