A book of condolence has opened this morning in memory of the teenagers who tragically died in the Tyrone disco tragedy.

The public can sign the book at The Burnavon arts centre in Cookstown, at Ranfurly House, Dungannon, and at The Bridewell centre in Magherafelt.

The three teenagers whose lives were tragically taken too soon were named as 17-year-old Lauren Bullock, 17-year-old Morgan Barnard and 16-year-old Connor Currie.

Tributes have been pouring in for the three teenagers since the harrowing news of their untimely deaths broke.

The community is said to be completely devastated by the loss of Lauren, Morgan and Connor.

The President of Ireland has expressed his concolences to their families.

He stated: “As President of Ireland may I express what I know is the shared grief of the people of Ireland at the terrible loss of life of young students in the tragedy that took place in Cookstown, County Tyrone on St. Patrick’s Day.”

He continued: “May I offer, in particular, my condolences to the families of the victims and to the pupils of the schools in Dungannon that I visited recently.”

The lives of the three teenagers were claimed when large crowds tried to push their way into the St. Patrick’s Day event at the Greenvale Hotel.

The PSNI are carrying out a major investigation.



The luck of the Irish!

A woman from County Tyrone has won the Best Dressed prize at Ladies' Day at Cheltenham, and we're loving her look.

Una O'Farrell Feeney scooped up a reward of €11k, after judge Roz Purcell crowned her with the coveted prize.

However, Una said that she's not used to all this attention and even had her wedding abroad to avoid all the people.

She told the Herald, "It's funny because I went to New York to get married and there was only 10 people there because I don't like people looking at me and there's a lot more people looking at me now.

"I started thinking about what I was going to wear about four or five weeks ago. I got the dress and I had the shoes to match. I'm delighted, I'm overwhelmed. 

"I haven't won a Best Dressed before, I've never so much as won a pound in the lotto," Una added.

We're only delighted for her!

According to the Independent, police are investigating the tragic event and three men, aged 26, 39 and 32, were taken into custody for drug-related enquiries.

Peter Cassidy, a neighbour of Amy said: "It's another young life lost. She was just a 21-year-old with her whole life ahead of her. The people who live round and about her are really stunned."

Our condolences go out to Amy's family at this difficult time.
