Car crash victim was a woman of energy
Amid scenes of heartbreaking grief, the coffin of road smash victim Angela Kelly was carried by her devastated twin sister Amanda from the church at her funeral, after pledging that the bond they shared will never be broken.
Mother-of-one, Angela Kelly (35) was amongst the victims of a crash which happened in the early hours of Sunday morning on the outskirts of Rathdowney, Co Laois. Also killed were Angela's friends, Martin Brophy and Orla Curry, both aged 20.
Angela's nephew Jamie (16), who was also injured in the collision but managed to send a text message for help, was among the mourners at her funeral yesterday at the Church of the Holy Trinity in Rathdowney.
Fr Martin Delaney noted how people are either "radiators or drains" - pumping out love and warmth, or draining others of every bit of energy with their negativity.
"Angie was definitely a radiator," he told her daughter Shannon (17).
