Ronan Keating performed a musical tribute to his brother Ciaran Keating at his funeral mass in Ireland.
Former Boyzone star sang “This Is Your Song” towards the end of the srvice, a tune he wrote after their mother, Marie, died in 1998.
Lyrics included the lines: “You were our friend, walk with you till the end, and one day we’ll all sing along, ’cause this is your song.”
Keating said: “I shouldn’t be singing it in these circumstances but we are and we will.”
He was among the pallbearers who carried his older brother’s coffin to St Patrick’s Church in Louisburgh, County Mayo.
The singer told mourners that Ciaran Keating’s children had made their dad “very proud”.
