The funeral of Keane Mulready-Woods will take place this week - despite his torso still not being recovered.

The 17-year-old was murdered and dismembered last month as part of a feud involving two Drogheda gangs.

Partial remains, including his limbs, were found in a bag in Moatview Gardens, Coolock, on January 15. Two days later his head was found in the boot of a burnt-out car at Trinity Terrace near Ballybough in Dublin.

Investigations into the teenager's murder are ongoing and searches have been carried out to find remaining body parts.

His funeral will take place on Thursday in the Holy Family Church, Ballsgrove, Drogheda, at 11am. He will then be brought to Calvary Cemetery for burial.

A death notice described Keane Mulready-Woods as "beloved son" of Elizabeth and Barry and a loving brother to his four siblings. "Sadly missed by his heartbroken parents, brothers, sister, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and a large circle of friends," it read.
