A tradition in Irish funerals, it's the name given to the enormous partying and alcohol consumption that takes place after an Irish funeral, as the Irish believe that the dead would not want to look down on their family to see them mourning and crying, but rather partying and remembering the good times of those passed.
After the funeral for my grandma, we all partied Finnigan's wake style to remember the good times.
