A fundraiser for the family of a teenager who died following a crash in Co Fermanagh has raised almost £10,000.

Oisin Gregg, 18, died last week from injuries suffered after a three car crash in Kesh on the evening of Friday 7 June.

Mourners at his funeral in Belleek donned colours of the local flute band North Fermanagh Young Defenders and of the local GAA club Erne Gaels in what was described as a first locally.

Reverend Rebecca Guildea, who presided over the young man’s funeral on Sunday, has set up a fundraiser to support his family. The fundraiser has now hit nearly £10,000.

“So many of us in the community wish to help the Gregg family as they struggle with the loss of a beloved son and brother,” the crowdfunding page states.

“We hope that this money will help Gareth and Mary through the difficult months ahead, and perhaps give them the opportunity to get away with their children over the Summer.”

Oisin’s funeral on Sunday heard that the young man was a ‘lovable, kind boy’:

“Oisin was a very lovable kind boy. He had a serious love for cars, he was the most loving, joyful person you could ever meet,” Rev Guildea said.

“He was the life and soul of the party, he was a great cub with a big smile for everyone he met. Always out for a good laugh and a party.

“Oisin was a great friend, he was funny, caring and just always good fun to have around. He would do anything for anyone.

“He had the biggest heart, a great role model and the gentlest soul.”
