Mum leads tribute to tragic teen Georgia

THE mother of a Bray schoolgirl who died after slipping from a train platform in Liverpool will pay tribute to her daughter in the Co Wicklow town, next Tuesday.

Loreto student Georgia Varley (16) was killed instantly on October 22 in front of her horrified friends and passengers

Her mum Paula, who has been living here for the past three years, was devastated to travel to England to bury her precious daughter last month.

Georgia had been living with her father for 10 months when the tragedy happened. She had previously lived with her mum all her life, mostly in England, but also for two and half years, in Bray and Cabinteely.

Paula is now back home in Ireland and has been organising Georgia's month mind Mass which will take place in the Church of the Holy Redeemer.

A procession with orange candles -- Georgia's favourite colour -- is expected to be led across town in memory of the youngster, after the ceremony.
