Tragic Karen 'now with mum'

THE family of the camogie player Karen Coyles, whose body was washed up in Scotland, said she is now "safe in the arms of her beloved mother".

The well-known sportswoman (47) disappeared on September 11, sparking a massive land and sea search across the north coast.

Karen was chairwoman of the Ballycastle Camogie Club in Co Antrim and had just returned from Dublin where her team had won the All-Ireland camogie sevens tournament. A body was recovered by Scottish police on the Mull of Kintyre last Thursday and was identified as Karen's remains on Saturday.
