David Gavin to be laid to rest in Breaffy on Friday

THE funeral of David Gavin, who was drowned in a swimming tragedy in Canada last summer, takes place on Friday.

The remains will arrive at the Church of the Holy Rosary, Castlebar, at 1 p.m. on Friday for Mass at 3 p.m. with burial afterwards in Breaffy Cemetery.

David's remains will return to Ireland, via Dublin Airport, on Wednesday.

A message from the Gavin family expressing gratitude for the financial support made available by GAA fans which enabled the prolonged search for David's remains to come to a satisfactory conclusion, was read over the p.a system at yesterday's game between Mayo and Galway in Castlebar.

David was a member of Breaffy GAA Club's senior team prior to moving to Vancouver, Canada.
