Shock at sudden death of graduate



Have your say

The family of a trainee pharmacist who died suddenly in England last week are drawing strength from the fact his organs will be helping others.

Ciaran Donnelly (23), from Aghacommon Embankment, collapsed on Tuesday with a suspected aneurysm.

He had been involved in a minor car accident a short time previously but it is not known if this was a contributing factor to his death.

His family, who had flown over to be at his bedside, made the agonising decision to allow his life support machine to be switched off on Thursday.

They are currently awaiting the return of his remains.

Ciaran, who was the youngest of seven children, graduated in July from Liverpool John Moores University.
