Funeral for Belfast nurse Seaneen McCullough who died in Turkey
The funeral of Seaneen McCullough, the nurse who fell from a balcony while on holiday in Turkey last week, will take place tomorrow.
Seaneen (37), who had travelled with her son Eoin and partner Paul, worked at the Mater Hospital in Belfast.
On Monday evening friends and family of the "bright and bubbly" former pupil of St Louise's Comprehensive in west Belfast gathered in New Barnsley, where Seaneen lived.
In a highly emotional speech, friend and organiser Rosaleen Lynass spoke fondly of her childhood friend and schoolmate. Another of Seaneen's friends, Colleen Catney, told the Andersonstown News of the moment they found out about their friend's passing.
"We had a group chat and when we heard the news we were all wrecking our heads trying to think of what we could do to help the family during this difficult time," she said.
Colleen and Rosaleen decided to start a JustGiving page to help her family with travel and funeral costs.
As of yesterday afternoon, the total stood at over £8,400.
The initial target had been £2,000.
Requiem Mass will take place at 10am in Corpus Christi Church, followed by committal at Roselawn Crematorium at noon.
