Tributes are continuing to be paid to one of Ireland's oldest women, Nancy Stewart, who has died, aged 107

Nancy lived through two World Wars and the 1918 flu pandemic, and the death of her husband, 30 years ago.

She came to fame as she embraced new technologies to attend mass, and share her thoughts on live.

Over 30,000 people attended her funeral yesterday, via live-stream.

Nancy is survived by 84 children, grandchildren and great-grand children.

Louise Coghlan moved in with her grandmother 3 years ago.

Louise, who is from Broadford, joined Clem Ryan on Monday's edition of Kildare Today, to share stories of Nancy's life, and their lives together.
