Hundreds of mourners attended the funeral yesterday of 23 year-old Sinead White (nee Robinson), who lost her battle with cancer just one month after she celebrated her wedding day.

Mother to three year-old Katie, Sinead had been diagnosed with cancer in October of last year after discovering a lump on her leg.

Doctors discovered shortly afterwards that the cancer had spread to Sinead’s lungs.

Just last month Sinead, from Rosnagalliagh, married her partner of six years Sean and celebrated with family and friends at the Waterfoot Hotel.

Sinead passed away peacefully on Monday at the Foyle Hospice, and was laid to rest following Requiem Mass at Our Lady of Lourdes, Steelstown at 11am yesterday.

She is survived by her husband Sean, daughter Katie, parents Alec and Martina and siblings Grainne, Laura, Sean, Catherine and Owen.
