Sinn Fein MP Michelle Gildernew has said her thoughts and prayers are with the family of 13 year old Belcoo teenager Oisin McGrath who is in a critical condition after an incident at St.Michael's College, Enniskillen yesterday afternoon.

The MP says,

"My thoughts and prayers are with the McGrath family at a time that what can only be described as every parent's worst nightmare. My oldest son is just one year younger than Oisin and I just cannot imagine what his family must be going through.

"I was in St.Michael's last Friday and the energy and life of the young lads in the room was really uplifting. To think that one of those boys is fighting for his life right now really upsets me.

"Oisin is, like most other teenagers, a very active young man and has been described as a 'key member' of the under-14 Belcoo team. I hope this stands to him and he makes a healthy and speedy recovery.

"Thoughts are also with the staff and pupils of St.Michael's College, as tragic incidents like this effect the whole community." ENDS
