Funeral details announced following sad passing of brave little Offaly boy

Funeral details have been announced for the brave little Offaly boy who tragically lost his battle with a rare disease at the weekend. 

One-year-old Daire McDonnell had a rare bowel disease and sadly passed away after being transferred to Crumlin Hospital on Friday having undergone treatment in the UK since last October.

Despite being so young, Daire was an inspirational little man in the town and his passing has been felt throughout the community with people in the town releasing balloons in his honour in recent days.

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions there will be a family funeral for Dáire on Wednesday at 12 noon in St. Mary's Church, Edenderry followed by private cremation at Lakelands Crematorium at approximately 3pm.
