CHLOE Kinsella was the second teenager from the same school to take her own life in recent months, her funeral was told.
Fr Pat Seaver mourned the fact that two young pupils of St Nessan's in Limerick had lost their lives to suicide.
The body of Chloe (15) was pulled from the River Shannon on Friday, six days after she had gone missing.
Schoolmates were already reeling from the death of another teenage girl, who took her own life over the summer.
In a powerful homily, Fr Seaver pleaded with all young people to "live life to the full" and said the Kinsella family did not want any other parents to suffer.
"We do not want to see any more tragedies," he said.
"All of us are anxious about one thing – not to glamourise Chloe's funeral service. Her death is tragic," he said.
"Life is for living, especially for young people."
Chloe's heartbroken family said she showed no signs of being depressed. However, Chloe was upset over the death of a teenage boy who had drowned during the summer in a swimming accident.
Mourners were led by Chloe's heartbroken parents Shirley and Kevin and their seven other children.
