‘A Beautiful, lively, talented young girl’

A FACEBOOK tribute page set up in memory of Hannah Doherty who died along with her father Colin in a car accident has had over 5.000 people join it to pay their respects.

Tributes began pouring in for the very popular 15 year old schoolgirl as soon as the page was set up following her death last week. The funeral for Hannah and her father Colin took place last Sunday at Magherafelt Baptist Church with hundreds of mourners turning out to pay their respects.

Family and friends of Hannah also turned out to release lanterns into the sky in memory of the young schoolgirl and her father, with Hannah’s mother releasing the first lantern into the sky.

Friends of Hannah have posted hundreds of pictures and tributes to the Rainey High School pupil, sharing stories of times they shared together. Here are just a selection of the comments and tributes left for Hannah:
