The funeral is expected to attract Hollywood stars as well as many Irish friends and family, the Irish Independent reports.

Margaret O'Shaughnessy, founder of the Foynes Flying Boat Museum and a friend of the late actress, will be one of those traveling to the funeral.

"We had nearly 30 years of friendship. That is a long time, so I wanted to travel for the funeral for Maureen and her family," she said.

O'Hara, star of "The Quiet Man" and numerous other blockbusters, was the greatest Irish film star to ever grace the silver screen. Her legendary red hair and superb acting skills made her famous.
