Mikey Connors Funeral Detail

Mikey Connors

PADDY Doherty wept as thousands of travellers paid tribute to his nephew today in a huge funeral featuring a fleet of Rolls Royces and horse-and-trap races.

The nephew of Big Gypsy Wedding’s star Paddy Doherty was buried in a blue casket engraved with a £100,000 jewel-encrusted crown.

Mikey Connors, 32, died after hitting a car while driving a horse and cart on the A2016 Eastern Way, in Thamesmead, on July 28.

More than 2,000 people arrived at Ashtead, Surrey, to bid farewell to Mikey Connors – who died when a car ploughed into him and his champion horse last month.
