'Two of the funniest lads there was': Tributes paid to friends who died in Donegal crash

The two young men have been named locally as Nathan Farrell, aged 18, and Nathan Fullerton, aged 17.

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN paying tribute to two teenagers who died in a car crash over the weekend.

The single-vehicle incident occurred in the early hours of Saturday morning, along the R238, the Quigley’s Point to Moville road in Co Donegal.

Three other teenagers were hospitalised, but are described as being in a stable condition.

The two young men have been named locally as Nathan Farrell, aged 18, and Nathan Fullerton, aged 17.

Friends paid tribute to the two teenagers on Facebook, expressing shock and condolences to their families.

“Two good men have been taken from us too soon,” one person wrote. “My thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends. Rest in peace, only the good die young.”

Shocking news to wake up to. Two of the funniest lads there was, RIP boys.

“Another two lives was taking last night. RIP Nathan Farrell and Nathan Fullerton, you will be sadly missed, two of the nicest boys and so funny. Fly high.”

Thoughts and prayers go out to families, two great men gone but never will be forgotten. I hope the other boys make a speedy recovery. Only the good die young.

“RIP Nathan Farrell and Nathan Fullerton. Gone but never forgotten – ’til we meet again.”

Weekend warning

Gardaí are warning other road users to be careful on Irish roads, as fatal accidents and road collisions are more likely to occur over bank holiday weekends, as more people are on the roads, travelling for longer periods of time.

The Road Safety Authority is offering free coffee to motorists at participating Applegreen service stations from tomorrow afternoon, in a bid to help drivers stay alert behind the wheel.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses, in particular anyone who may have travelled this road between 3am and 3.40am, to contact Buncrana Garda Station on 074 932 0540, the Garda Confidential Telephone Line on 1800 666 111 or any garda station.
