The funeral of Rebecca Hoban took place today. You probably will not hear much about her funeral, there were not hoards of cameras and reporters sitting outside Whitefriar Street Church this morning as her family gathered to remember her.

She was not a former Bond girl but she was also killed in violent circumstances last week.

The stabbing which led to her death took place not in a detached house in Howth but in a house used to house men who had been homeless.

Rebecca was also a mother, but she was from an inner city flat complex and her son was in care.

As you remember other women who were recently killed violently spare some thoughts for Rebecca and read this report by Kitty Holland about her funeral and her life.
