Ashling Murphy has been remembered as a kind, talented, loved and admired young woman.
The 23 year old's funeral mass took place in Mount Bolus this morning.
Ashling's first class students each held a red rose and photo of their beloved teacher as the cortege arrived at St Brigid's church.
Members of the Kilcormac/Killoughey senior camogie team also joined a guard of honour - as hundreds of mourners came to pay their respects.
The President and Taoiseach offered their condolences to the family as the service got underway.
In his homily, Chief Celebrant Father Michael Meade described Ashling as a precious gift.
"[She was a gift] that only gave joy, only gave love and only gave fun and laughter to many, many people beyond ourselves."
Offerings of a musical instrument, hurl, jersey of her local GAA club, a family photo and a book to represent her love of teaching were all brought to the altar.
Ashling's Cousin Ciara Leonard paid tribute to her through a Prayer of the Faithful.
She said the young teacher "epitomized the beauty of life" and that she shared her passions, gifts and talents so generously with others.
From the alter, Bishop Tom Deenhihan said that no that no individual should die like Ashling and no family should suffer like the Murphys are now.
He told the congregation the entire country is united in their grief and support.
"Respect is an old fashioned word. It was missing last Wednesday but it has emerged here all the stronger," he added.
The funeral concluded in Lowertown cemetery - where Ashling was laid to rest.
