The purpose is to highlight the number of suicides that are directly linked to financial pressures from banks and financial institutions chasing down their debt.
As one farmer who knew the man said last week, his death shocked the farming community because so many others in financial difficulties have found themselves staring into that same abyss.
According to those who attended, hundreds of people stood for hours on a dark cold night waiting to pay their respects at his removal.
He "hated" being in court, said one woman who knew him, and couldn't wait to get back home to his farm.
"He just wanted to go home and milk the cows," she said.
But the long-term finance never materialised and she later ended up in jail for bank fraud in her native New Zealand.
According to friends, he tried over the years to get a long-term loan to pay back Carlisle and be rid of the mounting interest rates.He was introduced to a woman called Susan Bourton, who promised to arrange this finance for a fee.More than 2,000 people turned out to his funeral the next day, spilling on the road outside the tiny parish church in his village.His death has prompted two public meetings in Tipperary, one in Cahir last Sunday night, and another to be held in Portlaoise on Saturday.
Main stream lenders often baulked when sub primes were involved. The lender took possession of his land, he was ordered to move his cattle and when he didn't, he was committed to prison last month for contempt of court. He died on his farm last Tuesday week, leaving behind a haunting note for his family. The creditor in this tragic case is no foreign vulture fund, but an Irish family business called Carlisle Mortgages Limited, an unregulated lender, founded in the late 1990s by a former motor dealer from Mayo, which specialised in arranging expensive loans for cash-poor clients.
According to other debtors who met the farmer on his many trips in and out of the High Court in recent years, he was a private man who didn't like to discuss his financial problems with others even though they were all in the pretty much the same boat.
