Hundreds of people have gathered for the funeral of three siblings killed by an allegedly drunk driver last week in Sydney's north-west.

Antony, 13, Angelina, 12, and Sienna Abdallah, 9, died after they were hit by a car on February 1 in Oatlands.

Their cousin Veronique Sakr, 11, was also killed.

A choir sung as mourners arrived at Our Lady of Lebanon Co-Cathedral in Harris Park today.

Three white coffins were carried in, including Antony's, which was draped with a basketball jersey number 24, the number of the late basketball star Kobe Bryant.

Dozens of school children are among the crowd.

The children were going to get ice cream when they were allegedly hit by Samuel William Davidson, 29, who was allegedly three times the legal blood alcohol limit. 

The Abdallah family has granted the media access to today's funeral.

More to come.
