Travellers flock to Wales for Rolls Royce-led funeral of scrap-dealing father


Hundreds of mourners turned out to Morriston Crematorium, some itinerant from as far as Scotland and Ireland, for the service of scrap metal dealer Steven Gilheaney who failed after collapsing at the end of January.

A fleet of five silver phantom Bankrolls Royces led the funeral procession, and doves were released as part of the benefit.

Mourners also sang traditional travellers’ songs at the graveside.

The latest pupil of St Joseph’s Primary was born in Morriston, and had lived at Swansea’s unceasing traveller site behind Morganite on the Enterprise Zone.
