Four childhood friends have been buried in West Donegal, on what's been described as a terrible, traumatic and tear-filled Thursday.

Thousands of people turned out to pay their final respects to Shaun Harkin, Micheal Roarty, John Harley and Daniel Scott, who died in a single car collision near Gortahork on Sunday.

Family and friends returned from as far away as Australia and Canada to say their final goodbyes.

The young men were described as genuine, nice young men who gave back to their communities.

Father Sean Gallagher says the friends were taken in the prime on their lives:

From break of dawn until the sun sets low, we say farewell.

Our fine four young men, snatched from us in the prime of life, in the bloom of their youth.
