HEALTH chiefs and Gardai are in a race against time to find the evil drug dealers who dished out deadly e tabs to young men, leaving one dead and four in hospital.
Tragic Oisin Crawford was killed yesterday morning after attending a party at a house in St Johnston.
There has been a huge outpouring of sympathy to his family, including well-respected Seamus Crawford who runs a tyre business in Raphoe.
Oisin was just 22.
Prayers are being said for his friend Simon Lynch, also 22, who remains in a critical condition in hospital.
His father Liam has called on the public to help Gardaí to catch those behind the evil drugs trade.
Officers are hoping to take statements today from all those who were at the house party on St Johnston’s Main Street in the early hours of yesterday in the hope of tracing vital witnesses who might be able to help catch the dealers.
Oisin is the latest victim of the drugs trade – and the trade in ecstasy tablets containing deadly chemicals.
The so-called ‘bad batch’ of drugs has killed several other people in Ireland this year including a 16-year-old boy.
The HSE has already identified the names of the drugs involved in the tragic Donegal case.
They are called Double Black or Double Cross.
Anyone with information should give it to their nearest Garda station or via the confidential telephone.
