Ciarán’s funeral was held last week.

Ronan was understandably overcome with emotion as he lay his brother to rest. During his funeral service, the singer paid a beautiful tribute to his brother.

The Boyzone star sang a heartwrenching rendition of Your Song during the service.

“This song was written 25 years ago, when we lost our Mum,” he said before he began to sing.

“I shouldn’t be singing it in these circumstances but..we are, we will. This is for you.”


He also spoke about how devastating losing his brother was but extended his condolences to Ciarán’s three children.

“As a parent, all you want to do is raise your children as best you can. Ciarán and Anne Marie have done a spectacular job,” he said.

Originally living in Mayo, Ciaran and his family relocated to Dublin 15 years ago.

There he worked as a car salesman and previously ran Maxwells bar in Lecanvey. While Annemarie worked as a secondary teacher.

The driver of the other vehicle and a passenger are understood to have also received treatment for injuries.
