One of two men who died during an Ironman event in Cork is being laid to rest today.
44-year-old Brendan Wall, who was from Slane in Co Meath, passed away during the swimming leg of the competition in Youghal on Sunday.
He had been living in the UK for several years.
He will be laid to rest after funeral mass at the Church of St Brigid in Grangegeeth at 1pm this afternoon.
Mr Wall is survived by his fiancé Tina, his parents, two brothers and one sister.
Canadian national Ivan Chittenden (64) from Toronto also died in the swimming section of the event on Sunday.
Mr Chittenden is due to be cremated in Ireland before his remains are returned to Canada.
It comes as a dispute has emerged between the organisers of last weekend's Ironman event and the triathlon governing body.
Triathlon Ireland said on Monday its officials did not sanction the race because of adverse conditions.
However, organisers Ironman Ireland said on Tuesday that was not communicated to on-site officials until "several hours after the swim was completed".
Cork County Council has asked organisers to provide them with a full report on Sunday's events.
