Hundreds mourn three brothers killed in Offaly crash

The funeral mass for David, Darren and Ryan Doyle took place yesterday afternoon.

THE REQUIM MASS for three brothers tragically killed in a car crash last week took place in their native Tallaght yesterday.

Darren (27), David (24) and Ryan Doyle (17) died after the vehicle they were travelling in was involved in a collision in county Offaly on Friday.

Mourners came to the Church of the Sacred Heart at Killinarden in Tallaght to say goodbye to the young men and offer comfort to their parents John and Angela and older brother Jason. Cremation took place afterwards at Newlands Cross crematorium.

The funeral of the fourth victim, 24-year-old Lee Bryan, is due to take place today. His remains will be removed from Maher’s Chapel of Rest in Portarlington at 1.30pm for a 2pm service at St Paul’s Church in Portarlington. The burial will be in the adjoining churchyard immediately afterwards.

The four were killed when the Honda Civic they were travelling in struck a mini-bus on the R420 Tullamore to Geashill road, about 2km outside Offaly’s county town. They all lived in the area after the Doyle family moved from Dublin some years ago.
