She passed away last Friday aged 93 with Eamonn revealing he and his “4 amazing brothers” were there to say goodbye to her.
The Belfast Telegraph report that Holmes was unable to attend the funeral due to ‘health reasons’.
However, the publication said that he did speak virtually to the congregation at St Patrick’s Church in Belfast.
The GB News presenter took to Twitter to thank his fans for their support and revealed he’s read all their messages.
“To all you genuinely good people who have offered me such kindness and comfort over the death of my Mother, I read all your messages and am genuinely overwhelmed and humbled,” he said.
Eamonn added: “Thank you from the bottom my Heart. We lay her to Rest this morning.”
He shared an image of him and his late mum alongside the tweet as they both smiled for the camera.
Eamonn, who is married to Loose Women star Ruth Langsford, previously opened up about his relationship with his mum as he branded her his “hero”.
The ex-This Morning presenter told how Josie’s mind was still “sharp as a tack” and praised her for making him “the man I am”.
His dad Leonard died over 30 years ago following a heart attack.
Eamonn recently revealed he was left with a fractured shoulder after a horror fall at his home in Surrey.
The star also previously had spinal surgery to try and ease chronic pain in his back and legs.
