“I’m a life-long Chelsea supporter, and I can’t understand how he is following Liverpool, but I worry that he might have the last word this year,” Fr Walsh joked.

Brooklyn’s heartbroken father, Wayne Colbert, told mourners his son had been “stolen” from him, in an act of “pure evil”.

“You were your mam’s pride and joy, the apple of her eye. You were such a polite and well spoken, caring and loving child,” he said.

The talented soccer player, who had played with Limerick FC, broke down several times. “This is hard, this is hard,” he could be heard saying.

“Brook I loved every day we spent together. You weren't just my son, you were my best mate, you were my training partner, my pride and joy. You made me the proudest father,” Mr Colbert said.

“My heart is broken into pieces. You were my everything. We were besties, real mates, real real mates. I will hold you in my heart until I hold you in my arms again. You are Daddy’s angel now, fly high.”

Mr Colbert prayed to local champion boxer Kevin Sheehy, who was killed in a hit-and-run last July, to look after Brooklyn.
