The 27-year-old lost her life after falling from a bus travelling through Barnesmore Gap outside Donegal town on Friday last. She was struck by a passing car after the fall.
The popular young teacher had been home on holidays and attending a wedding in Donegal. She had been living and working in Bahrain, where she was active in the local GAA club.
Her obituary notice reads:
Beloved daughter of Michael and Patricia and loving sister of David and Aishling. Amanda will be sadly missed by her heartbroken parents, sister, brother, partner Brendan Galvin and the Galvin Family, aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family, neighbours, friends, work colleagues in Bahrain and all her friends in the GAA Community.
May Amanda Rest In Peace.
