MOURNERS at Reece Cullen's funeral this morning were told "we must find alternative ways to solve conflict".

The teenager died tragically after being stabbed near his home in Jobstown last Thursday.

Members of Jobstown Boxing Club formed a guard of honour as Reece’s coffin was carried into St Martin de Porres Church in Aylesbury, Tallaght.

A number of teenage girls wore blue ribbons in their hair and t-shirts with Reece's picture on them in tribute to the teenager.

Bishop Eamonn Walsh told the congregation that "conflict can begin with a dirty look", and stressed that the way violence is dealt with must be changed.

A chorister sang 'In the Arms of the Angel' as Reece's coffin was led out of the church.

The funeral was followed by a burial in Kilmashogue Cemetery.
