THE FUNERAL MASS of concert promoter John Reynolds took place in Dublin this afternoon.

The 52 year-old, one of Ireland’s leading independent festival promoters, was found dead at his home in Dublin last week.

His funeral took place today in the Church of the Sacred Heart, Donnybrook, Dublin 4 at 2.30pm.

Reynolds’ company POD founded a number of beloved Irish festivals including Electric Picnic, Forbidden Fruit, Metropolis, and the recently established All Together Now.

The company ran the POD nightclub at the historic Harcourt Street train station for almost two decades before it closed in 2012.

Today’s funeral saw many mourners from the entertainment business attend to pay tribute to Reynolds. Among them were Damien Rice, Louis Walsh, Harry Crosbie, BP Fallon, Jim Sheridan and Marty Whelan. 

Originally from Co Longford, John Reynolds was also a nephew of former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds.

In a statement earlier this week, his family thanked the media, music industry and general public for their condolences, tributes and support following his death.
