“I had to do the most hardest thing to do this evening and that was to say goodbye to my one and only lovely beautiful sister Eimear, who was a true young lady and was loved by her family and many friends up and down the country,” he said. “She will be so sorely missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing my sister.

“RIP my beautiful sister Eimear. I love you and miss you xxx”
