Tributes were paid to a teenager who died in an accident in Donegal as his family posted a photo, reports The Mirror.

Conor McGinley, 19, from Milford, died after striking a pole outside the village of Carrickill in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The Connor family has released an official photo of a young man in a suit and tie following a local baptism.

His brother Dennis paid tribute on social media by sharing a photo of the two brothers together, writing: “My brother and bestfriend, I will forever love you Connor,” reports The Mirror.

Another young man in the car was taken to Letterkenny University Hospital, but his injuries are not believed to be serious. Only one vehicle was involved in the accident.

It is understood that Mr McGinley’s car ran out of control and struck a pole on the main road from Milford to Carrickill, just over a mile from Carrickill.

The accident happened around 3:30 am and it is known that there was heavy rain and poor road conditions, reports The Mirror.

Mr McGinley’s body was moved to the mortuary of Letterkenny University Hospital today.

A Garda investigation team is currently on site and is conducting a full investigation into the possible cause of the accident.

The deceased teenager is a member of a well-known and noble family from Drumburn in Milford, just a few miles from the scene.

The R246 road in Queens is currently closed to allow Garda investigators to inspect the accident site.

Diversions have been put in place on the R247 and R245 Rathmullan and Milford roads and traffic is being asked to avoid this road where possible.

Meanwhile, Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to the collision to come forward.

“Any road users who may have camera footage (including dash-cam) and were travelling on the R246 between Kerrykeel and Milford this morning between 3.00am and 4.00am are asked to contact Gardaí,” they said, reports The Mirror.
