Hundreds turn out as remains of Andrew Duffy return home to Termon

The remains of Andrew Duffy, who tragically died after falling into a canal in Dublin on Sunday night, have been returned to his home in Termon.

They arrived in Golldrum at around 915pm last night.

The funeral of the 24-year-old Donegal fan will take place tomorrow at 12 noon.

Scenes of deep emotion greeted the arrival of the body of Donegal supporter Andrew Duffy as his body was taken back to the family home yesterday evening.

Earlier Pauric Duffy, the general Secretary of the GAA, attended the removal of remains from the Mater hospital.

As the cortege made its way northwards several GAA clubs paid respects.

In Monaghan Town about 100 people assembled and heard Bishop Liam Mc Daid lead the prayers.

Members of St Patrick's GAA Lifford performed a guard of honour at Lifford bridge while in Kilmacrenann the local soccer club also lined the streets to pay the their respects.

As the Garda escort together with outriders approached the deceased's home at Goaldrum, Andrews team members escorted his remains on the last leg of his journey home, while members of the Termon Ladies team , which his sister Carolyn is a member, also preformed a guard of honour.

Fr Pat Mc Hugh and Fr Patrick Dunne officiated at the home where almost 1000 people attended.

Among the early callers to the Duffy house was Donegal manager Jim Mc Guinness, together with Donegal Team members Michael Boyle, Michael Murphy, Martin Mc Elhinney, Peter Witherow, Colm Mc Fadden, Antoin Mc Fadden, Daniel Mc Laughlin, Cristy Toye and Garry Mc Fadden,
