Appeal for 'supercars' to be brought to funeral of Irish teen who died of cancer

AN APPEAL has been launched for members of the public to bring their 'supercars' to the funeral of a teenager from Co. Wexford who lost his battle with cancer on Thursday.

Tyler Murphy, a 16-year-old from Clonroche, Wexford, was reportedly a massive fan of 'supercars' and now a family friend has taken to social media to appeal to gear-heads, car-enthusiasts and rich-folk in the area to bring their cars along to the funeral to pay tribute to the youngster, according the Irish Mirror.

Amy Howlin wrote on Facebook: "Right here it goes it is with heavy heart I am writing this and I hope people will reach out and help one of my friends nephews has sadly passed away at the young age of 16 it is not the first tragedy this family has suffered.


"Tyler's passion was super cars I am asking as a final fair well for this young boy that anyone that can help please show up in your cars give him the send off he deserves please share x."

Tragically, Tyler's younger brother Leon also passed away from cancer five years ago.

The Funeral will be held on Saturday at 11am in St. Clement's Church, Cloughbawn for anyone who might fit the description and wish to help.

Tyler's death notice read: "Loving grandson of Willie and Mag. Son of Annette, Sli an Uisce, brother of Derek, Mia, Lily, Mason, Daisy and the late Jasmine and Leon."
