The mother of tragic teenager Ana Hick, who died after collapsing outside a Dublin nightclub, has posted a poignant video on her Facebook page showing them singing together in happier times.

Ana Hick (18), from Dalkey, passed away yesterday after she was rushed to hospital over the weekend. She had been due to celebrate her 19th birthday tomorrow.

Officers are awaiting toxicology results amid concerns that the young woman may have taken ecstasy pills on the night she fell ill.

Gardai have ruled out a so-called ‘bad batch’ of ecstasy drugs being reportedly on sale in the capital.

   Ana was with friends in the early hours of Saturday when she collapsed outside the Twisted Pepper nightclub on Middle Abbey Street.

Ana was immediately taken to the Mater hospital, but a decision was made to turn off her life-support machine at 5.30pm yesterday.

Her father had flown from the United States to be by his only daughter’s bedside.

A source said that gardai were investigating the circumstances surrounding the teenager’s death and investigating reports that illegal substances may have played a role.

Today Ana’s mother Elga posted the video of herself and her daughter signing the Disney song ‘Part of Your World’ from the Little Mermaid movie.

The family of the former Loreto College student also said they are shocked at her death.

“We’re all devastated, our heads are all over the place,” her aunt Niamh said last night.
