The service for the 68-year-old, who had suffered from diabetes, took place at St Paul's Chapel in the Co Armagh town on Wednesday morning.
Former snooker world champion Ken Doherty was amongst those in attendance.
Ganley, who had been a milkman and bus driver, became one of snooker's most recognisable and best-loved officials during the sport's boom years in the 80s.
He took charge of four World Championship finals at the Crucible, including in 1990 when Stephen Hendry became the youngest champion.
Ganley retired from snooker in 1999 but was still closely linked to the sport, and received an MBE in 1994 for his charity work as well as his efforts to promote the game at grassroots level in Northern Ireland.
Six-time world champion Steve Davis called him a "great character" and "an excellent referee".
