Student Dies Two Day Before Birthday

A teenage boy collapsed and died during a GAA match — just two days before he was due to celebrate his 17th birthday.

The 16-year-old, named locally as Patrick Dinsmore, collapsed while taking part in a minor match at Greenpark Road in Rostrevor yesterday.

It is understood the St Colman’s College pupil, who was playing for St Peter’s GAA Club, Warrenpoint, had been on the field for just 15 minutes when tragedy struck.
