Oisín was laid to rest on Sunday at an emotional ceremony in Fermanagh.

His classmates from St Michael’s College wore GAA jerseys over their uniforms during the moving send-off.

The Principal Celebrant Father Séamus Quinn told those gathered at the funeral: “The grief of his young classmates from St. Michael’s, and his fellow team mates from sport say more than any adult could ever get across.”
