By Staff Reporter

Hundreds of mourners attended the funeral on Saturday of Carmel McGovern, mother of Northern Ireland football international Michael McGovern.

Mrs McGovern (61), who died peacefully at her Enniskillen home on Wednesday after a long battle with cancer, was described as a ‘humble lady with good humour’ who had ‘a beautiful personality’.

Among those present at St Michael’s Church were former colleagues of Mrs McGovern from the South West Acute Hospital, who formed a guard of honour as the cortege made its way to the service. 

Burial took place later at Cross Cemetery.
