Tributes paid to Ardara man who drowned in Dublin

The body of an Ardara man who went missing in Dublin at the weekend has been recovered from the River Liffey.

24 year old Conal Gildea from Carn, Ardara, a plumber, had last been seen by friends on Friday night.

His body was recovered from the water on Monday evening, and formally identified yesterday.

In a tribute on the Ardara GAA web page, it is noted that Conal Gildea will be fondly remembered as an outstanding full forward on the team that won the U12 championship in 1999, and several other youth and minor titles. He also represented Donegal at minor level, winning an Ulster minor title in 2006.
