Young Northern Irish man dies on holiday in Ibiza

A YOUNG man from the North of Ireland has died while holidaying in Ibiza. 

He has been named locally as Alan Drennan.

The 21-year-old from Newtownabbey, Co Antrim, had arrived on the Mediterranean island on Saturday with a group of friends.

However, he was found dead in his hotel room the following day.

The cause of Mr Drennan's death has not yet been established.

He worked for the firm SGL Security and had been a former pupil of Glengormley High School.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We can confirm the death of a British citizen in Ibiza on 19 July.

We have been liaising closely with the Spanish authorities, and are providing support to the family at this difficult time."

As friends and family paid their respects to Mr Drennan on social media, his distraught brother Lee posted his own touching message.

Nothing is promised to no one, appreciate everything in life because you never know when it can be taken from you.

I've learnt this the hard way as I've lost a massive part of my life, my wee bro...

After 21 years of listening to his voice every day and always having him to go to if I ever needed anything or vice versa, to be told I'll never have that again is the hardest thing I've ever been through.

I appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers for me and my family, also their respect for him. He was one of a kind and it's nice to see so many think so highly of him. Thank you.

I love you so much Alan. Always.
