The funeral will take place in County Kildare tomorrow of a young woman with strong Donegal connections who died in a tragic accident in Germany.
Popular Ciara Finneran (23), from Johnstown, Naas, died on Tuesday, July 13, after a fall while on holiday in Berlin.
Her mother Louise (née Gillespie) is originally from Ballybofey and the girl’s grandmother, Teresa, still resides there.
Her aunts and uncle also live in the area.
Ciara was prayed for at Mass in St Mary’s Church, Sessiaghoneill, Ballybofey, by local priest, Fr Patsy Arkinson.
Tributes have been paid to the young woman who was described by friends as “a great laugh” and “always full of chat and smiles”.
One former co-worker said: “Such sad news to hear. One of the best girls I ever had working with me for years.”
She is survived by her parents, Louise and Dermot, brother Eoin and sister Niamh.
Ciara is also survived by her heartbroken grandparents, boyfriend Cathal, aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family, neighbours and a wide circle of friends.
Due to current government guidelines, a private family funeral will take place in The Church of St. Brigid, Kill, tomorrow (Friday) morning at 11am.
