The Irish have a reputation for doing funerals well.

We have a history of celebrating and remembering the lives of our loved ones, observing old rituals and traditions and passing them on to future generations.

Kevin Toolis is the author of Nine Rules to Conquer Death, a book which explores how our predecessors guided themselves through life and death.

He joined us on The Last Word to talk about why we should take lessons on 'how to die', and how other countries' rituals around death differ from our own.
