Body of tragic crash teen brought home

HUGE crowds greeted the return of the body of a young Donegal man who died tragically in England.

Conor Boyle (18) died last weekend after he crashed his car in London on September 6, while going home from work at his father's tunnelling company.

A huge social media campaign resulted in thousands of people sending get-well messages to Conor as he lay in a coma for two weeks at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

However, the young GAA player from the Gaeltacht village of Loughanure lost his fight for life last Friday.

Conor's funeral takes place at the Star of The Sea church in Annagry at 1pm tomorrow.

Conor is survived by his parents Sheila and Hugh and brothers Liam, James, Darragh, Shane and Owen.
