    So very sad. RIP young man. Another young life lost to suicide, and unfortunately it’s so common. Heartbreaking for everyone. I’ll never understand it, life is so precious.

    Very sad and honestly speculation about the circumstances really inappropriate.

    RIP 🙏

    Still no articles about it on RTE, Irish Times etc despite Sinead posting the news herself last night.

    But the news has been confirmed by Sinead herself.

    Had this been an American celebrity, we would already have an article on RTE about it.

    There are reports that he was under the supervision of Tulsa. If this is the case, this is a public interest story as there will have to be an inquiry. The Irish media should be reporting on this.

    Very sad, far too young

    Of course it needs to be handled sensitively but it comes across as censorship after a while if every foreign news outlet is reporting something and we aren't. The Journal has just published a story about it.
