School issue warning over online funding page claiming to raise funds for funeral costs

The school issued a warning on Wednesday night.

People have been warned of a Go Get Funding Me page claiming to be raising money for funeral costs for a 32-year-old mother of two, Dawn Croke, who died when she was hit by a jeep in Dungloe last week.

Rosses Community School, where Croke used to teach, issued a warning on their official Facebook page.

It read: "It has come to our attention that a false gogetfunding page has been set up in our name. Please DO NOT donate and report wherever you see it. Thank you."

The page is said to have made over €10,000 at the time of writing.
