Back in Janaury a funeral was held for garda who was targeted in Irish conspiracy theorist’s viral video.
It is understood, Irish Central.com reported, that Leblique was subject to a barrage of abuse that took a toll on his mental health after he was featured in a video live-streamed to thousands of people by Gemma O’Doherty, a leading figure in Ireland’s anti-mask and anti-lockdown movement who claims COVID is a “hoax.”
The incident occurred in April during Ireland’s first lockdown. O’Doherty, protesting the lockdown measures, confronted Leblique and his partner in the video that spread across social media.
A freind tweeted: “Very sad to say goodbye to my dear friend Alan Leblique, who died suddenly on Monday. Alan was a consummate professional & one of the most polite, decent people I’ve met in the job. I was so proud that we got to march together in Dublin Pride in 2019 where this picture was taken.”

There were also a lot of comments.
I have no idea who this Gemma is, but she sounds like the kind of person who’d make ANYONE around her unhappy! 🤨— Chrissy 💙 (@wkdchris) May 28, 2021
What a sad, embittered person.— Tom MacLennan🇨🇭🇳🇴🇮🇸🇱🇮←🇬🇧 (@omnisophos) May 27, 2021
Isn't it nice that someone's moronic and bigoted views just prompt so many optimistic and life-affirming responses…— Dr. Jitka Štollová (@JitkaStollova) May 27, 2021
Perhaps she doesn’t know any happy people at all… being a black hole for any positive thought, feeling or emotion that has the misfortune to be caught in too close proximity to her.— James Archer #GreatBrexitBenefitHunt (@JamesKAArcher) May 28, 2021
Does she know any happy straight people?— Steve 💙 (@stevewmobb) May 27, 2021
Just looked her up in wiki. Seems a very unpleasant person.— Richard Bentall #FBPE #FBPA Woke and proud! (@RichardBentall) May 28, 2021
