Aoife is laid to rest

Bray People - - Bray People -

FRI­DAY saw mourn­ers from all over Wick­low pay­ing tributes to Aoife King at a farewell cer­e­mony in her Ash­ford home.

The pop­u­lar 21-year old-stu­dent trag­i­cally died while on an Eras­mus year in Bu­dapest Hun­gary af­ter be­ing struck by a ve­hi­cle in a hit-and-run. She died three days af­ter the in­ci­dent with her fam­ily by her bed­side.

Emo­tions were high at Fri­day’s farewell cer­e­mony in Aghowle.

The large crowd then made their way to Mount Jerome Cre­ma­to­rium in Harold’s Cross. Her par­ents Jim and Noreen and brother Oisín asked that rather than bring flow­ers, mourn­ers in­stead make a con­tri­bu­tion to Bothar or GOAL.
