Brave Cormac McLaughlin is to be laid to rest in his beloved Buncrana on Monday afternoon.
Cormac (39), from Castlederg, passed away last month in Texas following a long battle with cancer.
He had very strong Donegal connections.
Cormac is the son of Rhona (née Hegarty) and the late Charlie McLaughlin from Buncrana. He also has many family members within the area and his brother, Darragh, lives with his family in the town.
In Easter last year, he was diagnosed with an aggressive, life-threatening brain tumour.
Since then, more than €200,000 has been raised through the Care for Cormac fund to pay for pioneering treatment in the US.
However, he lost his battle on July 30 and his remains were finally flown home at the weekend.
Beloved husband of Krystal, cherished son of Rhona and the late Charlie, adored brother of Darragh (Tanya) and Niamh (Viv), loving uncle of Orlaith, Charlie, Aoife and Tadhg.
