      FUNERAL OF SECTARIAN ATTACK VICTIM 06/01/09 00:31 EST

      The funeral Mass for Kevin McDaid who was beaten to death by
      a loyalist mob in Northern Ireland will take place at St
      John's Church, Coleraine, later.


      The Catholic father-of-four was attacked near his Somerset
      Drive home in the town last Sunday.


      His friend, Damien Fleming, who was also attacked, remains
      critically ill in hospital.


      Nine men have been charged in connection with Mr McDaid's
      murder and the attempted murder of Mr Fleming.


      Trouble flared in the Heights area of Coleraine last weekend
      after Rangers won the Scottish Premier League over rivals
      Celtic.


      Mr McDaid's family said they were concerned police were
      involved in "negotiations" with loyalists on the day he was
      killed.


      However, Assistant Chief Constable Judith Gillespie claimed
      officers worked to ease tensions and came quickly to his aid.


      On Friday night, a loyalist band march in Coleraine,
      which organisers diverted to avoid the area where the murder
      happened, passed without incident.
