THE Killarney community is rallying behind a local family after the sudden death of a young mother of five.
Bellita Sailor died suddenly on Friday morning, leaving behind five children - the oldest just 10 years old - and her high school sweetheart.
Friends, family and the wider community have rallied behind Bellita's family, starting up a Go Fund Me fundraiser.
The fundraiser has raised $1665 in just 16 hours.
A tribute on the Go Fund Me page described the 27-year-old as a mother who "could not have done a better job" with her young children.
She was also described as "loyal to her friends" and an "amazing partner".
The family moved to the Killarney area 10 months ago.
