A MAN FROM Northern Ireland has died just hours after arriving in Ibiza for a holiday with friends.

Alan Drennan (21) from Co Antrim was part of a group of 12 who travelled to the island on Saturday. He was found dead in his hotel room the following day.

BBC News reports that police in Spain are due to carry out a post mortem examination, but currently the death appears to be of natural causes and there are no signs of violence.

His father, Alan Sr, told Cool FM that Ibiza was the only place his son had always wanted to go.

“I’d left him to the airport at 5pm on Saturday evening and that’s the last I seen of my son,” he told the station.

Alan was called after me and he was just mini me. He was Alan junior. He was me all over and, boy, will I miss him.

The British foreign office has confirmed the death a British national on 19 July, and are providing support to the family.

His father described Alan as a ‘super lad’.

[He was] straight as a die, everybody loved him because he was so straight.

“His mate in Australia had a job for him already and he had everything to go far, he had big big plans.”
