Ah sure, big names, if you're into that. Nick Cave sang 'Rainynight in Soho', Depp was there, Gerry Adams and AIden Gillen did readings, as did Boni, albeit a recorded one. Imelda May and Mundy did the Fairytale. Lot of other stuff as well. Michael D was there (the president, for those unfamiliar). Friends turned out for the funeral, in other words. Thousands were out in Dublin along the touted of the procession, perhaps more telling.
