BUNDORAN will come to a standstill tomorrow as the people of the seaside town say a sad final farewell to hit-and-run victim Alan McSherry.
The 48-year-old died in the early hours of Sunday morning as he walked to his home in Boynagh, Co Leitrim, after a night out in Bundoran.
But Alan never made it home, knocked down and killed by a driver who failed to stop.
He was found by his distraught wife Jo when she drove from their home looking for him around 5am.
Alan was originally from Birkenhead on Merseyside and had moved to Ireland 18 years ago after a holiday here with his wife.
He became well known around Bundoran as a handyman who could fix anything and was hugely popular.
His remains will be returned to England for cremation at a later date but not before his family give everyone who knew him a chance to say goodbye.
Alan’s remains will repose from noon today at his home with removal on Thursday at 10am for 11am Requiem Mass.
However his coffin will be taken through the Main Street of Bundoran on its way to the Church of Our Lady Star of the Sea.
Alan’s family has asked that mourners make a donation to the RNLI or Ozanam House instead of flowers.
The house is strictly private on the morning of the funeral.
Meanwhile Gardai continue their investigations into Alan’s death.
