By Jane Scott

The funeral has taken place of a Co Down man who was killed in a London road accident earlier this month.

Christopher Mackin from Rostrevor, who was in his 20s, died after being knocked down as he crossed a road in the city on April 14. His body was flown home after a post-mortem in London with the help of the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust.

Mr Mackin's Funeral Mass was held yesterday afternoon at St Mary's Star Of The Sea Church, Rostrevor. His GAA club, St Bronagh's, formed a guard of honour after the mass as Christopher was laid to rest in Kilbroney Cemetery.

Work colleagues from Christopher's past employers, First Derivatives PLC and Rostrevor's Cloughmor Inn, also attended to bid farewell to their friend and colleague who has been described as "a respected young gentleman".

Mr Mackin is survived by his parents Martina and Paul, brother Shane, sister Laura, granny Eileen and the entire Mackin, Cole and Gilmore family circle.
