Almost 90,000 euro has been raised in memory of the five people who died in last weekend's pier tragedy in Buncranna.

A justgiving page which initially set a target of 5,000 pounds sterling has received almost 48,000 pounds - or 60,000 euro in donations so far.

9,000 euro was raised in a fundraiser in New York on Thursday night while a woman in Buncranna has raised just under 20,000 euro for the victims families.

All five were laid to rest together in their native Derry on Thursday.
