The funeral of Sister Clare Crockett will take place in the Long Tower Church in Londonderry on Monday at noon.

The remains of Sister Clare who was killed in the last week’s earthquake in Ecuador, will be brought home on Friday night.

Her funeral Mass will be celebrated by Bishop of Derry Donal McKeown.

Sister Clare Theresa Crockett (33) from Iona Terrace in the Brandywell was among the 520 people to lose their lives in the tragedy last week.

In a statement issued last week Sister Clare’s relatives said: “We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to all those who have contacted our family, visited the family home and donated to the effort to bring Sister Clare home to Derry.”
