Last Tuesday, Gardaí said they were investigating all of the circumstances around the boy’s death but were “maintaining an open mind“ in their inquiries.
Gardaí stated that the results of a post mortem on the boy’s body “will determine the course of the investigation.” Gardai have not made any further comment or statement.
A funeral notice published this evening stated the boy passed away “following an accident” and was “sadly missed by his heartbroken parents, mother Elizabeth and father John Paul, brothers and sisters Michaela, Aaron, Bonnie and Kyle, Elizabeth’s partner Aaron, John Pauls partner Tegan, and his grandparents, Breda, Tony, and John.”
The boy’s remains will be reposing at his grandmother’s home at Scanlan Park, Castleconnell, on Saturday, 20th March, “for family and friends only. “
