The local coroner has been notified and Garda investigations are continuing. Our thoughts and those of the whole community are with the girl’s family.

Today's tragedy comes after the tragic loss of Jill Amante, the 14 year old girl from Astopn Village who died tragically on Friday 28th of June after she got into difficulty whilst swimming at Seapoint beach.
