A three-year-old boy has died suddenly in Wexford.
It is understood Ollie Dempsey from Monamolin, Co Wexford, passed away at Wexford General Hospital on Tuesday after collapsing at home.
According to the Independent, he is said to have displayed flu-like symptoms before dying, but the cause of his death is unknown at the moment.
He is survived by his parents Jane and Barry, brothers Eoghan and Darragh and sister Aishling.
Labour Councillor George Lawlor said: "It would appear that it was a very sudden death. Unexplained at this point in time."
"Of course that is put aside at this point as we concentrate on grieving with this family and assisting them as a community as best we can."
He offered the "sympathies of the entire community of Wexford" to the family and "all those connected with this little boy."
He told the newspaper: "It's just an awful tragedy, the whole community is deeply affected by this. It's unimaginable heartbreak for the family.
"My thoughts and condolences are with the Dempsey family."
Ollie Dempsey will be buried on Friday after the Mass Of The Angels at St Moling's Church in Monamolin which takes place at 1pm.
