Noah Donohoe funeral to be held in Belfast today

THE FUNERAL of tragic young teenager Noah Donohoe is to be held today in Belfast.

A private service will be carried out around 11am in St. Patrick's Church on Donegall Street in the Northern Irish capital.

A death notice released by the family reads: "Noah's beautiful pure young soul fills the hearts of his mother Fiona, his aunts Niamh and Shona and their beautiful children and his uncle Gearoid.

"He comforts his grandparents Margot, Gerry and Linda and his beautiful strong friends. He will be safe in the hugs of his aunt Siobhan in heaven.

"Noah's love was great enough to reach the selfless hearts of North Belfast and beyond as they showed overwhelming compassion and empathy in bringing Noah home.


"Love has no boundaries."

The 14-year-old went missing on Sunday, June 21, and after nearly a week of searching, police finally recovered the boy's body last Saturday.

His body was found in a storm drain complex in the North Belfast area, though the exact circumstances around his death remain unclear.

Around the time of his disappearance, Noah was seen falling off his bike and acting strangely, leading police to believe he may have sustained a head injury in the fall. 

A massive search operation then took place, involving hundreds of members of the local community.

After his body was recovered, the community came together once again to hold a candle-lit vigil, in tribute to the teenager.

May he rest in peace.
