    Funeral arrangements have been announced for Saoirse Kennedy Hill, the 22-year-old granddaughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy.

    Hill died Thursday after police responded to a call about a possible drug overdose at the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port.

    According to a statement issued Sunday by Brian Wright O'Connor, a spokesman for one of Hill's uncles, a funeral will be held Monday morning at Our Lady of Victory Church in the village of Centerville. A private burial service will follow.

    The Cape & Islands district attorney's office said Hill died after being taken to Cape Cod Hospital. An autopsy revealed no signs of trauma and investigators are awaiting toxicology reports.

    A Boston College student, Hill was the daughter of Robert and Ethel Kennedy's fifth child, Courtney, and Paul Michael Hill.
