The Finglas community will line the streets next week as the coffin of tragic mother Jennie Poole heads to the church before her funeral mass on Tuesday, April 27.
The 24-year-old died last Saturday after being attacked at her home on Melville Drive in Finglas, leaving behind two young children, Zack, four, and Neveah, seven.
Young Zack is believed to have been at home at the time of the stabbing. Since then, a man has been charged in connection with his death.
