Castlebar student dies tragically in Galway

THE young woman who died tragically in Galway on Sunday has been named as Nicole McCaffrey-Niland of Curradrish, Castlebar.

In her mid-20s, she was a fourth year medical science student at GMIT’s Dublin Road campus in Galway and news of her death has evoked widespread sorrow.

GMIT President Fergal Barry extended the college’s sympathies to her family and friends and a Memorial Mass will be held at GMIT later this week.

Her remains will be reposing at the Coady Funeral Home, Castlebar, this evening (Tuesday) from 5 o’clock with removal at 7 o’clock to the Church of the Holy Rosary.

Requiem Mass takes place on Wednesday morning at 11 o’clock with burial afterwards at the New Cemetery.

Deepest sympathy is extended to her parents, brother, relatives and friends.

May she rest in peace.
