THE late Peaches Geldof (25) was remembered at the funeral in Dublin of her great-aunt, Mai Geldof, who died at the age of 105.

As the extended Geldof family gathered to pay their respects to a vibrant woman who "seemed to find time for everything", prayers were said for relatives who had predeceased her, including her great-niece, Peaches, who died last April.

Dressmaker Mary Eileen Geldof, or 'Mai Fifi' as she was know, was the sister of Bob Geldof's late father Bob Senior, who passed away in 2010 aged 95.

Her funeral, which took place yesterday in the parish of Our Lady Queen of Peace on Merrion Road, Dublin, was attended by close friends and family members.

Bob Geldof was not present, although he had attended her removal the previous evening.
