MADONNA jetted into Ireland on Tuesday (23Jul13) to attend the funeral of her interior designer friend DAVID COLLINS.
Madonna was devastated by her longtime pal's death last week (17Jul13), and cleared her schedule so she could pay her last respects at his memorial service in Monkstown, County Antrim.
The Material Girl later delivered a heart-felt speech in her friend's honor at a lunch for 80 mourners at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in County Wicklow.
Irish TV host and comic Graham Norton was another famous face among the congregation, and he also spoke at the meal.
Collins, who designed interiors for many high end fashion boutiques and luxury department stores, died just weeks after he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of skin cancer.
