Keating Pays Tribute To Gately On First Anniversary Of Death

Irish singer RONAN KEATING has paid a touching tribute to STEPHEN GATELY on the first anniversary of his bandmate's death.
The 33 year old was found dead last October (09) at the home he shared with partner Andrew Cowles in Majorca, Spain.
Gately's close family and friends gathered in Dalkey Bay, Ireland on Sunday (10Oct10) to scatter the singer's ashes, but his Boyzone bandmate Keating was unable to attend the event because he is currently working as a judge on Australia's The X Factor TV show.
Keating is planning his own tribute alongside bandmates Shane Lynch and Mikey Graham, who flew Down Under be with him on the anniversary of Gately's death.
The trio will perform song Gave It All Away on the talent contest on Monday night (11Oct10), recruiting Aussie star Natalia Imbruglia to stand in for Keith Duffy, who is unable to join the rest of the band.
Keating says, "It's hard to believe it is a year. We still feel like he is still around and still with us. It's like he's on holidays, and it's surreal to know that he has gone. I went up to mass... I had a bit of time on my own and said a few prayers. The boys are here which makes it a little bit easier. We try to be around each other on his birthday or whatever the day may be... It's brilliant as long as we can honour and commemorate Stephen."
