Ms Calvey (65), who was originally from Doolough but lived in Clondalkin, was on Ballina’s upper bridge on Friday night shortly before falling into the river.

After an extensive overnight search and rescue mission, a body was removed from the water early on Saturday morning.

Gardai have appealed for witnesses to the incident and would like to speak to anyone who may have been in the area between 11.30pm and midnight on Friday last.

A message on RIP.ie said Mrs Calvey (nee Corrigan) was the beloved wife of Bryan and much-loved mother of Michelle, Kevin and Simon.

Pre-deceased by her brothers Gerry and Marty, Phil will be deeply missed by her heartbroken family, her sister Pauline, brothers Paddy, Val and Tony, her grandchildren, extended family and friends.

A Funeral Mass took place on Thursday morning at the Church of Transfiguration in Bawnogue.

The family asked for any donations, if desired, to be given to River Moy Search and Rescue, Ballina.
