The funeral will take place today of journalist Terry Keane who died at the weekend.
The 68-year-old had worked as a fashion writer and gossip columnist but shot to fame after publicly revealing her 27-year affair with former Taoiseach Charles Haughey in 1999.
Friends, family and former colleagues attended her removal to St Joseph’s Church in Glasthule, south Co Dublin last night.
Among the mourners was Integration Minister Conor Lenihan, members of the judiciary and Ms Keane’s son-in-law celebrity gardener Diarmuid Gavin.
Born Ann Therese O’Donnell in Surrey 1939, Ms Keane spent time in Ireland as a child and returned to study medicine in Trinity College Dublin.
She married barrister Ronan Keane who went on to become Chief Justice.
The couple had three children but later separated.
While she had hinted in her column – The Keane Edge – of a relationship with a political figure, referring to him as Sweetie, it was on RTE’s 'Late Late Show' in 1999 she disclosed it was Mr Haughey.
Seven years later she appeared on the 'Late Late Show' again and claimed to have deeply regretted the decision to publicly reveal the affair.
Her funeral mass starts at 11am and concludes at Mount Jerome Crematorium.
She is survived by her children Jane, Madeleine and Justine.
