The funeral of Portadown doctor Dr Sarah McAnallen took place in the town on Wednesday.

The 33-year-old was the daughter of retired town GPs Cora and Gerard McAnallen, who ran a practice at Portadown Health Centre for many years.

Dr McAnallen was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer in 2013. Just seven weeks ago, she wrote candidly about her experience of the illness in an article for the online Irish health website, irishhealth.com.

She is survived by her parents, sisters Orla and Susan and family circle.
