The funeral on Friday last of Celine Friel of Ashlawn, Letterkenny, drew a large congregation to the Church of the Irish Martyrs and to the subsequent burial in Rathmullan,

A highly popular individual, she passed away following an illness in Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry. She was aged 46 years.

A hairdresser by trade, she had been living for some years in the Maiden City.

Grieving members of her family were joined by a large circle of friends for the funeral mass which was celebrated by Fr. Joe O’Donnell.

He spoke of her friendly nature and strong sense of humour and said her passing at such a young age was, despite her illness, a shock to all who knew her.

Predeceased by her father, Jim, she is survived by her son, David, mother Bridie, brother Neil and sister, Kathleen, and other relatives and friends to whom sincerest sympathy is extended.
