Irish teenager brutally killed in Drogheda to be laid to rest on Thursday

THE FUNERAL for Keane Mulready-Woods is set to take place on Thursday.

Funeral Mass will be at 11am in Holy Family Church, Ballsgrove, with the burial afterwards in Calvary Cemetery.

The ceremony is set to take place exactly one month after the teen's remains were found in Dublin.

The 17-year-old was abducted, stabbed and eventually dismembered in a brutal murder which shocked the nation last month.

Keane was reported missing from his home in Drogheda, Co. Louth, and a day later, a bag was found containing human remains was discovered by gardai in Dublin on January 13.


It's believed that Mulready-Woods's arms and legs were cut off, before he was decapitated.

Gardai found the boy's severed head as well as his hands in a burnt-out vehicle in the Irish capital two days after they found the bag containing the boy's limbs.
