Student died after fall in car park

A STUDENT died when he fell down a metre-high drop in a dark car park after attending a college ball, an inquest has heard.

Ronan Conneely (23), of Derryloughaun East in Spiddal, Co Galway, suffered severe head injuries in the fall at the Dyke Road car park in Galway city centre on February 6 last year.

Dublin coroner Dr Brian Farrell heard he died at Beaumont Hospital five days later. Returning a verdict of death by misadventure, Dr Farrell said he would recommend Galway City Council install railings at the site.
