Jason Corbett removal to take place this evening

Family and friends will have the chance to pay their respects to Limerick man Jason Corbett this evening.

The 39-year-old father of two died after a violent incident at his home in the US earlier this month.

His body was brought back to Ireland over a week ago, but his family have waited for his two children Jack and Sarah to come home before holding his funeral.

Jason's body will be removed to Our Lady Queen of Peace church in Janesboro this evening, before being laid to rest in Castlemungret Cemetery, alongside his first wife Mags, tomorrow.
