Reece Meenan who died after a road traffic collision in Coleraine would have turned 14 in a few days.  Reece, a third year student at Loreto College in Coleraine, would have celebrated his fourteenth birthday next week.

Reece died from injuries sustained after being struck by a car at around 6.30pm. A 23 year old man arrested in relation to this incident was released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Detective Sergeant Wallace has appealed for anyone who witnessed the collision or who has any information to contact police in Coleraine or officers at the Collision Investigation Unit on 101.

A spokesperson for Friends Of Loreto said

“As a school community we were all shocked and saddened to hear about the tragic death of Y10 pupil, Reece Meenan, on Saturday.

Reece was an extremely likeable and popular pupil who participated fully in school life, being a member of both the soccer and Gaelic football teams. Two years ago, he was a vital member of the Y8 soccer team, which won the Y8 league and this year was a key member of the Y10 Gaelic squad, which is due to play in the semi final of the cup. Reece was beginning to develop as a student and was carefully considering his options for the future, with his passion for sport at the forefront of his career aspirations.

He was a lively boy with a good sense of humour and he will be desperately missed by his teachers and fellow students alike. May he rest in peace.”
