She built a close relationship with Mayo County Council and the Admiral Brown Society in Foxford, and in keeping with the wishes of her family, she will be laid to rest in Foxford on Friday.

Her Funeral Mass will take place in St Michael's Church, Foxford at 12 noon on Friday, with burial afterwards in Craggagh Cemetery, Foxford.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, attendance at the funeral will be strictly limited.
