The funeral of David Gavin, who was drowned in a swimmng tragedy in Canada last summer, takes place on Friday.

His remains will arrive at the Church of the Holy Rosary, Castlebar, at 1 p.m. on Friday for Mass at 3 p.m. with burial afterwards in Breaffy Cemetery.

David's remains will return to Ireland, via Dublin Airport, tomorrow (Wednesday).

The talented footballer got into difficulty after jumping from a bridge at Kinbasket Lake in British Columbia last June.

His remains were recovered last month, after an extensive search.

A message from the Gavin family expressing gratitude for the financial support made available by GAA fans which enabled the prolonged search for David's remains to come to a satisfactory conclusion was read over the p.a system at last Sunday's game between Mayo and Galway in Castlebar.

David was a member of Breaffy GAA team prior to moving to Vancouver, Canada.
