Eight-year-old Emma Lynch died in hospital

The funeral of an eight-year-old girl killed in a road accident at the weekend is to take place on Wednesday.

Emma Lynch was one of two children who died after being struck by a car near the junction of the Falls and Springfield roads on Friday.

She was walking along with her eight-year-old friend, the child's two brothers and their father when they were struck by a car.

Emma was taken to hospital where she died from her injuries on Sunday.

Emma's cortege will leave the family home at Pollard Street at 1215 GMT on Wednesday for Requiem Mass at St Paul's Church.

Christoper Shaw, 11, from Valleyside Close, was killed instantly in the accident.

His older brother Darren, who was hurt in the same incident, is still in a critical condition in hospital.

Their sister and father escaped injury.

Christopher, who should have celebrated his 12th birthday on Monday, was buried at the City Cemetary after Requiem Mass on Tuesday.

A 42-year old man has been charged with causing the deaths of Christopher and Emma by dangerous driving and of causing grievous bodily harm to Darren.
