A guard of honour will be held at the funeral today of a Co Fermanagh grandmother hit by a pick-up truck on New Year's Eve.

Elaine McGarrity (54) from Irvinestown died following a collision on Tuesday morning on the Brownshill Link Road.

A funeral notice said she would be sadly missed by her large family circle. It described the grandmother-of-four as the devoted wife of Maurice and loving mother of Fiona and Aaron.

She is also survived by three siblings and predeceased by her brother John and sister Katie.

A Requiem Mass will be held today in Sacred Heart Church, Irvinestown, at 11am with burial afterwards in the adjoining cemetery.

Irvinestown GAA club will form a guard of honour at the church gates.

The club said: "It is with great sadness that the club has learned of the tragic death of Elaine McGarrity, mother of esteemed past players Fiona and Aaron and grandmother of current youth players Ben, Codie and Cahir. We offer our deepest sympathy to the entire family."
