Melanie funeral to be in London

THE funeral of teenage murder victim Melanie McCarthy is expected to take place in north London later this week, but final details have yet to be finalised.

Family and friends yesterday gathered to pay their respects to the 16-year-old who was killed by a gunman in Tallaght, Co Dublin, last week.

From around 2pm, dozens of people filed into a funeral home in Clondalkin village, west Dublin.

It is understood her funeral will be held in St Dominic's Church in Kentish Town, north London.
