The teenage sister of a schoolgirl who committed suicide less than two months ago has died.
Shannon Gallagher, 15, who paid emotional tributes following 13-year-old Erin's death, was found dead in Co Donegal last night.
It is believed she had also killed herself.
The Donegal VEC, which runs Finn Valley College in Stranorlar, which both girls attended, said they were "trying to find the words and response to the tragedy".
"The school would still be in crisis mode," chief executive Shaun Purcell said.
The Gallagher family, from Ballybofey, were said to be "completely distressed" by the tragedy.
Suicide is now (and has been for some time) out of control in this nation. We really need to take a long hard look at the society we want and the one we are creating for certain sectors of our people. This is just so tragic and sad i am lost for words.
