The funeral for Bundoran hit-and-run victim Ronan Wilson will take place in his home village of Kildress this afternoon.
Ronan, aged 9, was killed after he was struck by a car in Bundoran where he was visiting with his family on Saturday.
A beloved son, brother, grandson and nephew, young Ronan has been remembered as a keen footballer who played with the Kildress Wolfe Tones GAA club.
Ronan’s father Dean described his wee ‘Roro’ as “my main man my Hero & son.”
In a heartbreaking tribute on Facebook, Dean wrote: “I love him so much, he’s been taken from us by a hit and run driver.
“We will never be the same without out, we can’t cope I’m broken.
“Roro was the best son anyone could ask for 9 years for pure pleasure.
“Rest in peace my son and best friend, love u forever from Daddy Mummy Calum and Amy, and all our surrounding family and friends, we love u Ronan.”
On Tuesday, 23-year-old Sergee Kelly, with an address at Upper Mullaghmore in Sligo, appeared in court on charges in connection with the fatal road traffic collision.
Mr. Kelly failed stop following the incident and did not render aid.
Judge Éiteáin Cunningham remanded him on bail to appear before Ballyshannon District Court on 20 October 2023.
