The funeral procession will then go to Portstewart Cemetery.

Anyone, regardless of denomination, can attend the funeral.

But the family has requested that relatives only bring flowers.

They also ask that any donations be made to the Karen Hilltribes Trust or to Scottish Mountain Rescue.

Una and three friends — Christopher Bell (24), Tom Chesters (28), and his girlfriend Rachel Majumdar (29) — were killed when tons of snow and ice carried them down the notorious Bidean Nam Bian mountain.
