The late broadcaster Marian Finucane is to be laid to rest on Tuesday.

The 69-year-old RTÉ presenter died suddenly at her home on Thursday.

Her funeral will take place at St Brigid's Church in Kill, Co Kildare at midday on Tuesday followed by a private burial.

Her death notice reads: "Loving wife of John and mother of Jack and the late Sinéad.

"Will be dearly missed by her loving family, relatives, colleagues, and friends."

Tributes have been paid across politics, broadcasting, and society.

President Michael D Higgins said Ireland lost a "deeply respected, trusted and much-loved broadcaster".

He said: "A superb professional, many will remember the wisdom and sensitivity with which Marian Finucane dealt with discussions and confrontations between different voices on what were controversial issues of the day.

"She was one of the very early exemplars to those who sought a proper representation of women in broadcasting."

The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) said Ms Finucane was "recognised as being a pioneer of Irish broadcasting who paved the way for women in RTÉ".
