The funeral of a teenager from Carrick on Suir in Tipperary, who had been missing since St. Patrick's day, will take place on Thursday.

14 year old Elisha Gault's body was found in the river Suir on Sunday after an 8 day search.

Elisha's mother, Grainne Gault, announced the funeral arrangements on her facebook page earlier today.

She invited people to join the family and throw a white flower off Dillion Bridge into the river before funeral mass at 11am at the Church of the Assumption in Pilltown.

She will be buried in the adjoining cemetery afterwards.
