The funerals of a brother and sister from Roscommon who died in a swimming accident in Kerry last week take place today.
Dessie Byrne and his sister Muriel Eiksson from Baylough near Athlone lost their lives while swimming at Ballybunion beach last Thursday evening.
It's believed that Dessie tried to save his sister who got into difficulty in the water moments before the double tragedy.
A joint funeral mass for the siblings will take place at St John's church in Lecarrow at midday today.
The father of two will be interred in the local cemetery following the mass with Mrs Eriksson to be cremated on Wednesday.
