HUNDREDS of mourners are expected to attend the funeral for Co Tyrone teenager Hannah Molloy which takes place in her home village tomorrow.

The 18 year-old, from Trienamongan in Castlederg, died on Saturday after her car left Fyfin Road close to its junction with Concess Road.

Parish priest Fr Colm O'Doherty said her family are "devastated and in shock" at their sudden loss.

A former underage footballer with Aghyaran St Davog's GAC, she had studied at Loreto Gramar School in Omagh and was beginning a Health and Social care course at South West College in the town.

Born in her mother's home town of Bristol, Hannah moved to Castlederg when she was nine years old and more recently worked at Dunnes Stores in Omagh.

Friends took to social media yesterday to spread the details of her wake and funeral to "give our girl the send off she deserves".
