Local support for Oisin Merritt who is currently in an induced coma is continuing to build.

A charity table quiz in aid of Oisin Merritt’s family has been organised for 9.30pm tonight in The Millview Bar, Stranorlar. Entry is €10.00 per person.

Merritt (19), a talented football player for Finn Harps Reserves, is understood to have suffered a fractured skull and various other injuries after falling while on holiday in Mallorca with friends. He was placed into an induced coma following the tragic accident.

Yesterday, Oisin’s family had some good news as reports came through that the young Donegal man had started to respond to treatment for the first time in 17 days. While his condition still remains critical the family are hopeful of these positive signs and have asked that everyone back home in Donegal continues to pray and send positive thoughts to Oisin.
