Oldcastle in mourning for Cathal Reilly

Oldcastle and Carlanstown have been plunged into mourning at the death of Cathal Reilly of Loughcrew View, Oldcastle, and Robertstown, Carlanstown, in a freak accident in Sligo in the early hours of Thursday morning.
The popular young Oldcastle man fell to his death in Sligo early yesterday. He had been on a Valentine’s break with his girlfriend when he fell from railings at around 1.45am.
He is understood to have suffered serious head injuries after the fall from a height of about 5 metres.
He was taken to Sligo Regional Hospital where he was pronounced dead at around 2.30am.
A spokesman said Gardai were satisfied the death was not suspicious and described it as “a tragic, freak accident”
Cathal is the son of Gerard and Margaret Reilly and is also survived by his sisters Grace, Helena, Lorna and Jessica, brother-in-law Liam, niece Keira, girlfriend, Sinead Clinton, grandparents Sue and Eamon Reilly and Philomena Caldwell, aunts, uncles and cousins.
His remains are reposing at his home in Oldcastle and will be removed tomorrow to St Mary’s Church, Kilbeg for Requiem Mass at 1pm. He will be buried afterwards in the adjoining cemetery.
