Boyzone fans celebrate the life of Stephen Gately at ten-year anniversary mass in Dublin

Fans of Stephen Gately came together to remember him at an anniversary mass marking ten years since his death today.

The singer passed away on 10 October 2009 in Mallorca after suffering a pulmonary oedema caused by an undiagnosed heart defect.

Today his mother Margaret was joined by dozens of fans at St Lawrence O’Toole Church on Sheriff Street in Dublin, close to where Stephen grew up.

Speaking afterwards, she said she was grateful that so many people had turned up to remember her son.

"It’s very, very sad, but I will see him again," she told Independent.ie.

Margaret, who lost her husband Martin in 2017, added; "He is up there with his Da".

None of Stephen's bandmates were able to attend the mass though they did share tributes to him on social media.

"Miss you bro," Ronan Keating wrote on Instagram, posting a number of photos of Stephen.

Keith Duffy meanwhile shared a photo of himself and Stephen together on stage and wrote; "Chance made us Colleagues, love and laughter and fun made us best friends.

"I miss you brother 10 years ago today the good lord deemed you to good for this world, He needed an angel in heaven ! Today I celebrate and reminisce all the fun and laughter ups and downs . I love you Steo and I pray you continue to look over me."
