While the surrounding area of Dunmore East is still coming to terms with the tragic death of fisherman Jack Power hundreds of mourners attended his funeral in Our Lady’s Church, Carbally, Co. Waterford on Sunday last. A 17 year old youth was arrested following the incident on the Shanakiel estate on Thursday in Dunmore East but was released without charge early on Friday morning. A file is being sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

She said that she had heard many stories about her son for the first time in recent days from his friends all of which emphasised his loyalty, sense of fun and love for them, as well as his love of the sea. Fr.Donal Hogan told the thronged congregation that the presence of so many people was testament to what Mr. Power meant to everyone, than words could offer. He is survived by his parents Loretta and Richard, brothers Ben and Lee.
