'When grief is deepest, words are fewest' – Tributes paid to young Irishman, 22, killed after he was hit by a train in London

TRIBUTES are being paid to a young Irishman who died after he was hit by a train in London at the weekend.

Paul Rynne, 22, was struck by a train at Harrow and Wealdstone station in north-west London at around 7.30pm on Saturday night.

Mr Rynne, originally from Miltown Malbay in Co. Clare, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police are not treating his death as suspicious.

Taking to Facebook last night, Paul's sister Caroline Rynne posted a picture of her beloved sibling along with the caption: "My darling brother xx".

Tributes quickly poured in for the tragic 22-year-old, who had been living in the Harrow area of London for some time.

One friend wrote: "Our deepest condolences to Eamon and all the Rynne family. Paul worked with us for a short time and we got to know him as a really decent lad with a great personality and left a great impression with all of us".

Another said: "Tragic and heartbreaking. Goodbyes hurt the most when the story was not finished. When grief is deepest, words are fewest. He let me use his phone the other week when mine got stolen bless him".

A third added: "Sincere sympathy to Eamonn and all of his wonderful family. May Paul’s gentle soul Rest In Peace."

A memorial mass for Paul will be held at 7pm on Thursday at St Joseph's Catholic Church in Wealdstone.

Members of the public are welcome to attend the special mass to show support for the Rynne family.
