# Oisín McGrath
17-year-old re-arrested over death of schoolboy (13)
Oisín died after being injured during an incident in school.

A TEENAGER WAS re-arrested by police yesterday investigating the death of Oisín McGrath (13) in Fermanagh.

Oisín died after being injured at St Michael’s College in Enniskillen last week.

Following the incident, a 17-year-old student was questioned by the PSNI.

The teenager has now been re-arrested by police investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of Oisin McGrath.

The PSNI confirmed that a 17-year-old male who was arrested and bailed last week was rearrested on suspicion of manslaughter.

DCI Gareth Talbot from Serious Crime Branch said:

The youth was interviewed [yesterday] and was subsequently released on continuing bail.

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.”
