The funeral is to take place of a nurse who died after her car plunged into a Fermanagh lake at the weekend.

Unagh Gallogly, a 55-year-old from Drumquin in Co Tyrone, was taken to hospital after she became trapped in her car when it plunged into the water at Muckross Pier on the Boa Island Road in Kesh at around 10.30pm on Saturday.

Police, the Irish Coastguard, RNLI, the fire service and the ambulance service all attended the scene.

Mrs Gallogly died in hospital on Monday morning.

Her funeral will take place at 11am on Wednesday in St Patrick's Church in Langfield, Drumquin. It will be followed by burial afterwards in the adjoining cemetery.

She is survived by her husband Michael, children Aidan, Mark and Eimear, brothers Eugene, John, Martin, Kevin, Francis, Brendan and sisters Monica, Patricia, Shelia, Nuala and Ita.

"Deeply regretted by her sorrowing husband, daughter, sons, brothers and sisters, brothers in law, sisters in law and entire family circle," a family death notice read.

"Mary queen of heaven pray for her."

Alistair McCammon made an attempt to rescue Mrs Gallogly after coming across her car in the lake on Saturday night.

He managed to pull her up and out of the car and dragged her to the shore, where an ambulance had arrived and she was rushed to hospital.
