A private funeral mass was held on Monday for the 22-year-old granddaughter of Robert F Kennedy, who died last week after being found unresponsive at the family's compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, a family spokesman said.

Saoirse Kennedy Hill was laid to rest following the mass at Our Lady of Victory Church in Centerville, Massachusetts, Kennedy family spokesman Brian O'Connor said. Her parents and 91-year-old grandmother, Ethel Kennedy, attended the closed service in Centerville, southeast of Boston on Cape Cod, along with members of the extended Kennedy clan, local media reported.
