Marian Finucane's son, Jack Clarke, said his mother touched the lives of so many because of her empathy and curiosity |

Speaking at the funeral, Ms Finucane's husband John Clarke said she was a woman he loved for 40 years, who "made colours brighter" and made "the world easier to live in".

Many of her friends and colleagues from RTÉ over the years were there to pay their respects, including broadcasters Joe Duffy, Claire Byrne, Miriam O'Callaghan and Ryan Tubridy.

He said: "We were at a wedding last week, and Mam was sending me smoke signals from the back because she couldn't hear me."He said: "Mam would've been so proud and grateful to see the family muck in." He said Marian had a great empathy and sense of fairness and had treated everyone with courtesy and respect and described her as a generous and determined woman and a thoughtful and kind friend whose keen sense of humour enriched the lives of many while her charity work at home and abroad was simply outstanding.
