Hundreds attend Casey-Lyanne Kearney’s funeral

TEARFUL mourners comforted each other in Cantley this morning as they came together in grief for the funeral of Casey-Lyanne Kearney.

Hundreds of friends and family attended the service at St Wilfrid’s Church in Cantley to bid an emotional farewell to the 13-year-old schoolgirl.

Moving tributes were paid to the McAuley High School pupil including a eulogy read by Rev Canon John Willett from Casey’s father.

Mourners sung Amazing Grace during the service and Casey’s coffin - which was adorned with orange and yellow flowers - was carried out of the church to the sound of Christina Perri’s Jar Of Hearts.
