FOOD AND supplies from the wake and funeral of Oisin McGrath were donated to aid volunteers in the search for the body of Kieran McAree by the family of the Belcoo teenager who died tragically this week.

 The search for the missing Monaghan man has been ongoing since the 24-year-old was last seen in the Henry Street area in the early hours of Wednesday December 17.


A body was found in the search for Kieran today, Wednesday, by search teams.

A spolice spokesman said: “Police recovered a body from Lough Erne at the Round O in Enniskillen today (Wednesday, February 18), shortly before 12.44pm.

“A formal identification process is to take place, however the family of missing Monaghan man Kieran McAree have been informed.”

13-year-old Oisin died following an incident in St Michael’s College last week.

Ann Treanor, Kieran’s auntie, explained that the food and supplies arrived at the Round ‘O’ on Monday, where temporary facilities are in place for the search teams involved.
“It came in on Monday,” she explained, “There were two girls with food that the family wanted to send down to here. We went out and took it off the two girls: There were scones, buns, home-made bread, cakes – two boxes of stuff.

“We weren’t expecting anything – we’re so grateful that they thought of us,” she added.

“We were shocked to hear about Oisin. It says a lot about the family that they thought about us. Please God we’ll get our own closure,” she said.
