16-year-old who died had local connections

The young teenager who died suddenly at Moate Community School on Tuesday of this week has relations living in Roscommon town. 16-year-old Tony Parker of Mount Temple died at the school during a PE class after collapsing and falling to the floor. Emergency services were quickly on the scene but efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.    The late Tony Parker is a cousin of Tom Parker of Lisnamult, Roscommon, who told The Roscommon People that the family were ‘devastated’ by the death.   While the cause of the sudden death has not been established yet suspicions are focusing on Sudden Cardiac Arrest which was highighted some years ago by the death of the Tyrone football captain Cormac McAnallen.
