Boy [7] Drowns In Tragic Accident At Hotel On Tipperary/Clare Border.

A seven-year-old boy, sadly, lost his life yesterday, following a tragic accident at a hotel swimming pool on the Tipperary/Clare border.

We understood that the boy was attending a birthday party at the Lakeside Hotel & Leisure Centre, latter which overlooks the twin heritage towns of Ballina in Co. Tipperary and Killaloe in Co. Clare.

Gardaí and emergency services quickly responded to the scene shortly before 3:00pm yesterday, Saturday April 20th. The boy was rushed by ambulance from the Leisure Centre to University Hospital Limerick, where he was later pronounced dead.

The local coroner has been notified, and arrangements are being made for a post-mortem examination.

We understood the boy was recovered from the water in a unconscious state and efforts were made to try to save his life at the poolside.

While the incident is being considered as a tragic accident, the pool within the hotel’s leisure centre has since been closed.
