Colleagues of the Irish nun killed in the Ecuadorian earthquake have issued an emotional video tribute to her.
Sister Clare Theresa Crockett, 33, from the Brandywell area of Derry City, was among more than 350 people who died when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck in Ecuador at the weekend.
Her order - the Home of Mother Order based in northern Spain - included an interview with her taken just three months ago in which Sr Clare speaks in both English and Spanish.

She spoke about her dedication to God.
A spokeswoman for the order in Cantabria told Independent.ie: "We are devastated by Sister Clare's loss and we wanted to put this video together to show the world what a wonderful person she was."
The order has appealed for donations to help their work in schools in Ecuador and help re-build the school destroyed in the earthquake.
