Large crowds are expected to attend the funeral of 90 year Paddy Lyons who was found dead in his Waterford home over a week ago.
Family and friends will gather at St Mary's Church in Ballysaggart at 11 o'clock this morning to bid farewell to the retired farmer.
26-year-old Ross Outram from Clonmel in Co Tipperary has been charged with his murder.
Local residents said Mr Lyons was a very active member of the community who would attend many events.
His body was discovered after his absence was noted at a recent funeral and neighbours became concerned for his well being
