The family of a young Mayo girl who was tragically killed in Australia are appealing for donations to bring her body home.

Amy Gill from Kiltimagh in Mayo died in a two car collision in Melbourne last week.

The 23-year-old had just moved to Australia in January and was heading to her second day of work on a local farm when the tragic even took place.

The family have set up a GoFundMe page and said the following:

"beautiful Amy was taken from us too soon when she lost her life on 6th February in Australia.

Amy, 23, started an exciting new adventure to Australia in recent weeks. After giving up her job in retail in Castlebar, Co. Mayo before Christmas, Amy and her best friend left home to start their new lives in Melbourne Australia. After a few weeks of traveling the girls decided it was time to start their regional work just outside Melbourne. On Wednesday last, the girls were making their way to their second day of work when tragedy struck. Unfortunately Amy lost her life in a fatal road accident on that morning. Amy’s family are completely devastated with the loss of Amy and are desperately trying to get her home to Coolaght Claremorris as soon as possible.

There are massive fees and costs associated with getting Amy home, and we, Amy’s cousins, are asking you for your help in funding this. We know that Amy’s immediate family will not rest until they have Amy back home in Ireland. Any donation, no matter how big or small would be greatly appreciated."

They have raised over €41,000 so far and you can donate here.
