The man who stabbed him was looking for a fella who was having an affair with his ex. He mistook the young man for him in the dark of the pub. Can you imagine the devastation this has caused such a small community

Yesterday, gardaĆ­ appealed for anyone who has information on the incident on Saturday to contact them. A Garda investigation has been launched.

Meanwhile, islanders turned out in large numbers for the removal of Mr Boyle at Letterkenny General Hospital yesterday.

More than 200 people, mostly islanders, attended the removal as Fr John Joe Duffy prayed for Mr Boyle and his family.

His funeral takes place after 11am Mass tomorrow at St Crone’s Church."
