Pandemic upends life for Irish pub owner-turned-undertaker

Jasper Murphy, funeral director and publican of McCarthy's Bar and Undertakers, drives his hearse with a prepared coffin to collect the body of a deceased local man from hospital in the County Tipperary town of Fethard, Ireland, January 31, 2021. As one of around 80 Irish publicans carrying on the tradition of doubling up as the local funeral director, Murphy has seen first hand how the pandemic is preventing people coming together in good times and bad.

Jasper Murphy drives his hearse through empty streets past his business. In ordinary times, family and friends might remember a loved one over a meal and a pint at McCarthy's, but that's not possible with the country locked down again after a devastating third wave of infections led to more COVID-19 deaths in January than the previous eight months combined.

"People really do miss that," Murphy said, sorting orders for takeaway Sunday roast dinners - the only hospitality service allowed under COVID-19 curbs. "In a lot of cases, a funeral might be the only time a family meets. I know that's an odd thing to say. When you've got people living away, you might not see them again until the next funeral."

Historically in Ireland, many bar owners juggled careers as undertakers, farmers, grocers, auctioneers and postmasters. McCarthy's was once a hotel and numbers still hang on the rooms upstairs.

Jasper Murphy places a crucifix on his work bench as he prepares a coffin for a recently deceased man. In this instance, preparations included a trip to Marks & Spencer to buy a suit for the deceased, whose home was too damp to retrieve one of his own after he died in care. In an added coronavirus complication, Murphy had to ask the store owner for a dispensation to make the purchase, as non-essential retail is currently banned. REUTERS/Clodagh Kilcoyne
