Jim Carrey Attends Cathriona White's Funeral In Ireland

The funeral of Jim Carrey's ex-girlfriend has taken place in Ireland with the Hollywood star among the mourners.

The actor joined Cathriona White's family and friends in the village of Cappawhite in Co Tipperary, where she is being buried beside her late father Pat.

The 30-year-old make-up artist was found dead in a house in California on September 28 with Carrey describing her death as like being "hit with a lightning bolt".

One of those who travelled with the movie star to the funeral stressed he was "here to grieve".

Carrey also posted this sweet tribute to Cathriona...

White moved to Los Angeles in 2009 and took roles as an extra on a television show before working behind the scenes.

Carrey, 53, dated her for a while in 2012 and they were pictured hand in hand in New York earlier this year.

White's funeral Mass took place at Our Lady of Fatima Church, in her home village.


Her death was being treated as suicide with the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office leading the investigation.

Father Tadhg Furlong, parish priest, said White's family and friends are faced with a life cut short, a vision not fulfilled, a dream not realised.

"Cathriona's approach to life was to take on, to challenge the county, the country, the world," the priest told mourners.

"You remember the outgoing personality - the strong-willed, determined character."

"Cathriona was a light to so many. Something of the light has gone out. Yet much remains.

"The light continues to shine."
