Funeral takes place of drowning victim

The funeral of a teenager who drowned in a Co Fermanagh lake last weekend, has taken place on Wednesday.

Martin McGoldrick, 19, had been swimming alongside his brother and two friends in Coranny Lake near Rosslea on Saturday when he went missing. His body was eventually found by police divers on Sunday.

Mr McGoldrick, who had been on his way home from a gaelic football match at the time, was buried following Requiem Mass at St Lawrence's Church in his home town of Fintona in Co Tyrone.

Fintona SDLP councillor Pat McDonnell, who knew Martin well, said his death had cast a cloud over the whole community.
