The funeral of an Athlone couple who were tragically killed in the Tunisia terror attack will take place on Friday.

Larry (Lonnie) and Martina Hayes will be buried in Coosan Cemetery outside Athlone town after the funeral at 11am at the Church of S.S. Peter & Paul's.

They will repose at Flynn's Funeral Home, The Strand, on Thursday evening from 2pm with the removal at 7.40pm.

The family's death notice reads: "Tragically on holiday in Tunisia.

"Sadly missed by their heartbroken daughter Sinead, Lonnie's brothers Seamus and Michael, sisters Ann and Della, and Martina's brothers John Joe, Tommy and Billy and her sisters Evelyn, Ita, Della, Patricia, Pauline, Maureen and Veronica, his uncles Andy and Steve, their brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces, cousins, colleagues, neighbours, relatives and many friends.

"May they both rest together in eternal peace."

The popular couple were tragically killed on the beach in Sousse just moments before they left for the airport for their return flight home.

A total of 38 people were killed in the attack, after a young terrorist undertook a shooting spree on the tourist-filled beach.
