Greenvale enquiry call

A CALL has been made for a multi-agency approach into the deaths of three teenagers following a crush outside the Greenvale Hotel and a father of one of the teenagers has also demanded a Public Inquiry.

Police Ombudsman Marie Anderson has said a multi-agency approach is needed to investigate the deaths of three teenagers at the Greenvale Hotel if another tragedy is to be prevented.

Morgan Barnard (17), Lauren Bullock (17) and 16-year-old Connor Currie died as they queued to get into the Greenvale Hotel in Cookstown on St Patrick’s night 2019.
