Gardaí are appealing for dash-cam footage or to speak to any witnesses to a road traffic accident which led to the death of a young Dublin schoolboy.

Cian Marren (6) died in Temple Street hospital on Sunday, where he had been since Friday after he was knocked down by a van in Shankill Co Dublin.

It is believed Cian, who was from Ballycullen, and other family members had been visiting the home of one of his grandparents when the tragedy occurred at a pedestrian crossing at the entrance to the Hazelwood estate on the busy Shanganagh Road.

A statement from Cian's family said he would be "sadly missed" by his heartbroken parents, Liam and Lisa, and his sisters Aine and Ciara.

"He will be deeply remembered by his loving parents, sisters, grandparents, uncles, aunts, extended family, au pairs Laura, Eleanora, Ana and Marina, and all his neighbours and friends," they said.

The family also asked mourners at his funeral to wear bright colours to honour the joy Cian brought.

The driver of the van has been interviewed by gardaí.

Now gardaí are appealing for information or footage from anyone who may have been in the area.

Anyone with information may contact the Gardaí at Shankill Garda Station on (01) 666 5900, the Garda Confidential Line 1 800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
