Mother-of-three Ruth Maguire will be laid to rest this Saturday in her native Co Antrim.

Ms Magurie's body was discovered in Carlingford Lough on Monday after she went missing while on a hen party at the weekend.

The 30-year-old was originally from Belfast, but had been living in Newcastle, Co Down with her family.

A family death notice described her as the "beloved partner of James, loving mother of Tyler, Lydia and Oliver, daughter of Geraldine and Malachy, sister of Raymond, Rachel and Ryan".

Ms Maguire's funeral mass will place at St Vincent de Paul's Church on the Ligoniel Road, Belfast at 9am on Saturday. She will then be buried in Carnmoney Cemetery.

"Deeply regretted by her loving partner, children, parents, brothers, sister and family circle," a notice read. 

Mrs Maguire was part of a 32-strong hen party who travelled to Carlingford in Co Louth to celebrate an upcoming wedding.

She was last seen by friends at around 11.30pm on Saturday and a search operation began on Sunday involving an Irish Coastguard helicopter, the Greenore Coastguard, the Belfast Coastguard and Kilkeel Lifeboat.

Her body was discovered in the water at Carlingford Lough on Monday afternoon.
