Funeral of young Mayo man who died tragically in Greece

The funeral arrangements have been announced for Cian McHale, Castlebar and Galway, who died tragically following an accident in Crete last Thursday.

The 21-year-old lost his life after getting into difficulties when he was swept out to sea by strong currents while swimming in an area off the coast of Hersonissos on the Greek island.

Cian will repose at the Coady Funeral Home, Castlebar, on Friday from 4 until 7 p.m.

His remains will be removed to the Church of the Holy Rosary, Castlebar, on Saturday at 11.45 a.m. via the old Turlough Road and Main Street, Castlebar, for Requiem Mass at 12 noon.

Burial takes place afterwards in the New Cemetery, Castlebar.

He is deeply regretted by his heartbroken mother Nicola, brother Torin, grandparents Frank and Mary (Castlebar), uncles Fintan and Sean, aunts Fiona and Vanessa, cousins Eoghan, Eabha, Fionn, Lanah, Keelyn and Katie, relatives, neighbours and friends, especially his close friends in Galway.

Deepest sympathy is extended to the bereaved on their loss.

May his gentle soul rest in peace.
