DONEGAL TEENAGER CONOR Boyle has died from injuries sustained in a car crash in England two weeks ago.

The 18-year-old was left in a critical condition after his car hit a tree in Peterborough on Friday 6 September.

Conor was moved to a specialist neurological hospital in Cambridge this week for treatment for severe head injuries. Speaking to the London-based Irish Post newspaper earlier this week, Conor’s father Hugh said the family would have needed a miracle for the teenager pull through.

He remained in a coma and on life support, and passed away earlier today.

Members of Conor’s GAA club, Naomh Mhuire, have been paying tribute on Facebook following today’s tragic news.

Words can’t describe how we feel this morning in the club, the news we prayed and hoped would never come has hit us and its a terrible feeling to lose one of our own so young.

To Sheila, Hugh and the boys and extended family we extend our deepest sympathy.

RIP Wee Conor Boyle you were one of our own and you will be deeply missed, but will be remembered always by us.

Conor had been working in England after completing his Leaving Cert in June.
