Author and former undertaker Jeremy Massey spoke with Ryan Tubridy this morning about his view of death from a personal, and professional perspective.
Born in to the undertaking business, he was involved in organising funerals from his teenage years and spoke about the intimate nature of such a difficult job.
“I don’t even know how many funerals I’ve arranged or been around, but when you’re around other peoples grief you’re there as a facilitator and you’re right up against it… you can see the pain but you can’t feel it.”
Jeremy also spoke of the tragic loss of his young brother Zeb, from a heart attack at the age of just 30.
“When death comes home, it takes you down at the knees.”
Jeremy left the family business to become a writer. He spoke to Ryan about his book “The Last 4 Days of Paddy Buckley” which is loosely based on his time growing up among corpses, coffins and cremations.
