A grieving daughter has thanked mourners who lined the street to give her popular dad a poignant send-off.

Video shows scores of folk applauding while socially distancing as Jackie Brady’s funeral cortege went by his local pub the Dolphin in Dundee on Friday.

Mum-of-one Alison Bower said the turnout was a fitting tribute to “sociable” Jackie who lived in Fintry his whole life apart from two years Down Under in the early 80s.

She added: “It took our breath away seeing the amount of people clapping outside the pub, the Chinese takeaway and the people who run the local shop.”

“My dad was a really sociable man and he spoke to everybody. He went to the local pub and he was nice to people.

“He was always smiling and they just took him in. As he got older and went off his legs and had to use a stick and then a frame, people helped him."

Fighting back tears, Alison, 50, added: “Everybody was out there and it really showed the love for my wee dad. I didn’t realise there was going to be all those people. I just thought there’d be a few of his pals, not all those people.”

Engineer Jackie worked at Bonar Long and then NCR before retiring at 63, helping bring up grandson Brady, 25, who was named after him.

“He’d go walking for miles and he helped everybody,” said Alison. “If you needed your house painting he’d decorate it for you.”

A keen golfer and footballer in his youth, Jackie was a member of the Whitfield Social Club.

The friendly father-of-five and granddad of seven grandchildren had Parkinsons and died, aged 73, at Ninewells Hospital of pneumonia on May 26.

With numbers allowed at funerals limited during lockdown, regulars at the Dolphin were among those applauding his cortege.

Alison said: “From young boys in their 20s to men in their 80s - everybody was out. Everybody seemed to know him.”
