THE heartbroken family of a young man killed in a horror motorcycle crash led the tributes after his tragic death.
Lennon McCabe Murphy, 20, from Dublin, was killed at Inns Quay in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
According to Dublin Live, Lennon was pronounced dead at the scene after the motorbike pulled off the road and hit the lamppost.
His family took to social media, paying tribute to the young man.
Jenny O’Reilly, Lennon’s cousin, said she “can’t believe” she’s writing a tribute to her late relative.
She shared a photo of Lennon and said: “I can’t believe I’m writing this, my cousin Lennon McCabe Murphy has passed away.
âPlease pray for his family and friends. May you rest in peace angel.
“May God give the whole family the strength to overcome this.”
People who knew Lennon flooded the comments with their condolences.
One person commented, “I only saw him last night on my way home from work to get gas in the garage. No way, so sad another life left too soon thinking about the family RIP.”
Another wrote: “Oh my God Jenny, I can’t believe I’m seeing this, can such a beautiful kid tear himself apart”.
While a woman added: “In sheer shock I can’t believe this my god. Take care of his family RIP Lennon what a lovely, heartbreaking young man.”
Elsewhere, a young man has been described as heroic for saving his friend’s life by pulling him from an overturned car that plunged into a river, killing two other friends, during an investigation held in West Cork.
Coroner Frank O’Connell paid tribute to survivor Fergal O’Sullivan, who through his heroism no doubt saved the life of his traveling companion, Luke Harrington, 18, by pulling him from the overturned car as she was submerged in the river just off the Kenmare in Glengarriff Road.
Car driver Tadhg Murphy, 19, and passenger, Michael Bowen, 40, died when their car veered off a road and ended up in a river where they drowned.
The friends had socialized with others at Dowlings Caravan Park in Kenmare, County Kerry on the night of August 2.
They then went with about 20 friends to a picnic area in Pooleen near Glengarriff where they sat around a campfire to chat and drink until 3:45 a.m.
