The funeral of a 20-year-old man who died after taking a legal herbal high took place in South East, London yesterday. Jimmy Guichard died in a hospital in Kent after suffering brain damage and a heart attack earlier this month.
Since his death his mother Karen Audino has mounted a campaign to have the sale of legal highs banned in England.
The former St. Eunan’s player moved to Letterkenny with his mother and two sisters when he was twelve years old.
Yesterday friends and family attended a funeral service which was held at Falcon Wood Crematorium, Eltham.
The family will hold a service in Letterkenny on their return, details of which are to be confirmed. The ashes of the late Jimmy are expected to be scattered at O’Donnell Park in Letterkenny - home of his beloved St Eunan’s GAA club.
