One of Westlife boyband Shane Filan has lost his mother. The star announced the sad news through his twitter account thanking everyone that stood with him.
“I would like to say thank you to everyone for all your well wishes this time. Tao all fan for all your support and lovely messages, thank you.” Shane said.

known as Mae, the deceased has left behind her husband and seven children of Shane namely Finbarr, Peter, Yvonne, Liam, Denise, Mairead, and Shane.
Westlife’s prolific career can only be owed to Mae after she helped the group secure a chance with Louis Walsh, a family friend then.
“She knew my mother. Mae was from Kiltimagh originally and was living in Sligo. Anyway, she rang me and said how good her son and the group were, and for some reason, I believed her.” Louis said.
Mae was laid to rest on Monday, and her funeral service will be held on Tuesday.
