An article published on independent.ie earlier this year headlined ‘Body of Irish student found inside college as peers celebrate Rag Week’ referred to the death of student Jamie Shaw in Sligo.

We wish to confirm absolutely that Jamie Shaw died from natural causes, that his death was not linked to any Rag Week or social activities and that alcohol or drugs were not involved in his death. We apologise to Jamie’s family and friends for the distress caused by the report.
