Ms French (24)  died in hospital on Thursday, December 6th after collapsing at a friend's house the previous Sunday.

A Garda investigation into her death, involving officers from the National Drugs Unit and the National Bureau of Criminal Investigation, has been continuing since December.

Hundreds of mourners, including the Taoiseach's aide de camp Captain Michael Tracey, attended her funeral in her home village of Enniskerry, Co Wicklow.

French celebrated her 24th birthday, along with a host of celebrity and media friends, the week before she died, in Dublin's Krystle nightspot.

Born in Switzerland, French's family moved to Ireland when she was a young girl and settled in Enniskerry.
