The boy who drowned in Co Louth yesterday has been named locally.
10-year-old Joshua (Joshie) Hill lost his life at his home in Carlingford, where it is believed he was in the hot tub.
Paramedics rushed to the scene, but he was pronounced dead in Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital.
A notice on RIP.ie said "Joshie's memory will be cherished forever by his heartbroken parents Olivia and Peter, best friend and brother Oliver, adoring grandparents" and other family and friends.
Joshua's funeral is due to take place tomorrow morning in Carlingford.
Local councillor Emma Coffey says it was a tragic accident.
"Look, it's absolutely devastating," said Ms Coffey.
"I'm absolutely so sorry for the family of that young boy.
"This is the summer. Summer day, as all young children do, out playing and unfortunately just such a tragic accident that can easily happen.
"And unfortunately did happen.
"My sympathies go to the family of that poor boy. I hope that he rests in peace."
