Gone but not forgotten.

Adam Mangan, a talented GAA and rugby player marked as one for the future in both sports in his native Offaly, was tragically killed in a farm accident just over a month ago.

He was seen as a huge prospect in Offaly GAA and Adam was very highly thought of in rugby circles having played for both Leinster and Ireland, as well as his local club in Tullamore.

The teenager’s passing has devastated everyone in his local community but now a local artist is trying to help the family cope with their loss with a wonderful tribute to the youngster.

Artist Orla Brennan was asked by a friend of the Mangan family to produce a reminder of  how sporty Adam was to present to his parents and she has delivered a wonderful tribute to the late teenager capturing his personality perfectly,
