'Five more angels in heaven'

Mary Fogarty

Five more angels in heaven - that's what Fr John O'Connell said at the heartbreaking funeral in Shankill of Annmarie O'Brien (27), her daughter Hannah-Paris Patel (2), and their cousins Jordan McGinn (4) and Holly McGinn (3).

Annmarie was expecting a baby boy, AJ, who was due next week and buried with the other children and his mother.

A fire in a Clondalkin apartment claimed their lives in the early hours of Wednesday, March 8.

AJ was named in memory of Annmarie's late brother Andrew, who died in a prefab fire behind Christ Church in Bray seven years ago.

Jordan and Holly's mother Biddy McGinn (O'Brien) is gravely ill in hospital following the fire.
