That voice, singing 'The Foggy Dew', played as the coffin of the tragic teenager was carried to her final resting place in Bullaun, Co Galway, yesterday.

The 19-year-old died in the early hours of Monday after falling unwell at her debs ball, an event which she had helped organise as a sixth-year pupil of St Raphael's College in Loughrea.

Creepy pictures show mysterious 'ghost' driving down M50 Skerries woman Faye couldn't believe her eyes as she drove alongside with her daughter and niece in the car . Speaking to Dublin Live, she said they eventually saw a driver as they pulled more ahead, but it didn't stop her pranking the girls pretending there were some dark arts at play.

It' s not something we like to talk about much. We may know our local funeral parlour, but do we know what really goes on there? Or what an embalmer actually does? Or how long a cremation takes, and how it works? Rebecca Atkinson and Sarah Tavner talk to the people who handle us after death.

"She lived her short life to the full, always in the middle of it - but never wanting to be the centre of attention," he said.

"Our girl loved to sing and perform. Even in Jess's toughest days she would love drama - her performances in 'Les Miserables', 'Cat in the Hat' and 'Hairspray' showed just how brilliantly talented she was. Only lately she said she missed performing because she had stepped back for her Leaving Cert year.

"Music and singing were Jess's comfort zone, her place of refuge - when Jess was annoyed, the piano suffered, and by God did she belt out some collection when she wanted to," he added.

"We are so happy we have recordings of her that we can treasure and we can always turn to her for a song."

He lamented the fact he would miss monumental milestones in her life, and how her Leaving Cert results of 531 points had shown she had all the potential to fulfil her dreams. He joked she'd had two other goals, to set the bar for her sister Ali, and to beat her older brother Cian who she was always so proud of.

"I often joked with her that she was our pension fund, with her talents she was going to shine all around the world. But here we are," he said.

"Everything was coming together for her. She will always be our vibrant, funny, quirky 19-year-old that we all loved so dearly and that we will miss terribly."

He said that his daughter had been "relaxed and happy" before her debs, even holding a sing-song with Ali (17) in their house before she went out. During the Mass, Ali performed a powerful rendition of 'She Used to be Mine' from the musical 'Waitress' and 'Jealous of the Angels', by Jenn Bostic, in her sister's memory.
