The funerals of four friends who were killed in a crash in Donegal will take place today.

Shaun Harkin, Micheál Roarty, John Harley and Daniel Scott, who were all in their 20s, and from Falcarragh, Gortahork and Gweedore - lost their lives in a single vehicle collision near Gortahork on Sunday night.

Their lives were cut short when the car they were travelling in left the road and ended up on its roof in a field outside of Gortahork at around 9pm on Sunday.

The funeral of 22 year old Shaun Harkin will be the first to take place in Gortahork at 10am.

At half past 11 - just a short drive away in the village of Dunlewey, final goodbyes will be said to 24 year old Micheál Roarty.

In the afternoon, John Harley – who is also 24- will be laid to rest in his native Falcarragh, and 23 year old Daniel Scott in Gortahork.

The funeral’s will be predominately in Irish, with many of the families being fluent gaeilgeoirs.

Guards of honour made up of the various clubs, teams and schools the young men were involved with are expected to line the streets, as the community across West Donegal tries to come to terms with its loss.
