Bishop: 'Evil act' took Michaela McAreavey's life


Bishop John McAreavey has told mourners that Michaela McAreavey's death robbed her husband John of a beautiful wife.

The bishop was speaking as he delivered the homily at the Requiem Mass for Michaela McAreavey, who was found strangled in her hotel room in Mauritius a week ago.

The funeral was held at St Malachy's in Ballymacilroy, County Tyrone, the church in which Michaela, the daughter of Tyrone Gaelic football boss Mickey Harte married John McAreavey on 30 December.

The service was led by Mr McAreavey's uncle, Bishop John McAreavey, who married the couple.
