Irish News: Priest warns of internet dangers on Ronan Hughes anniversary

On the first anniversary of the death of Co Tyrone teenager Ronan Hughes, a priest has warned of the continued threat to young people from the dangers of the internet.

Benedict Fee dedicated his sermon on Sunday to the memory of the talented young GAA player.

The 17-year-old took his own life on 5th June 2015 after being tricked into posting images of himself online and was threatened with them being made public.

Ronan was described as a “quiet and modest young lad who was popular among all players and coaches”.

During his funeral, Fee told mourners Ronan’s tragic death was a “direct result of online cyber-bullying and extortion”.
