He added: “He was both laid back and passionate at different turns, if that can be possible.

“Always up for the craic, he was brimming with life when he was out with his friends. He would do anything for them and they would do anything for him.”

Mourners also heard that Seanna, who worked as a scaffolder, was a talented footballer who loved the outdoors, and also had a passion for cars.

The priest added: “His boss at work has readily acknowledged his aptitude. He was a young man who had great potential for the future.

“He has also been fondly remembered by both his teachers and fellow students.”

Following the service, interment took place in St Colman’s Cemetery.
