Tragic teenager who died after being hit by a train in North London is named

Tributes have poured in to a teenager who died on January 2 after being hit by a train in North London.

Connor Marron was described as a wonderful son, brother and grandson who always had a smile on his face. The 19-year-old, was passionate about sport and excelled at football and snooker, according to BelfastLive.

Originally from Ahoghill, in Co Antrim, Northern Ireland, he was struck and killed between Alexandra Palace and Finsbury Park stations.

Rodger Casements GAC, Connor’s local club, took to Facebook to pay their respects to the 19-year-old and his family.

Their post read: “This morning we received the devastating news of the death of one of our young footballers, Connor Marron.

“Connor represented Sean Stinsons and Casements at underage level and enjoyed great success as a player and team captain through the juvenile ranks.

“In 2015 he captained the Sean Stinson’s Óg Sport team, which competed in the All-Ireland Series in Donegal. Last year he made his debut for Casements senior reserves and would have no doubt gone on to play at senior level.

“Son of former chairman Fergal, Connor was often found at O’Cahan Park alongside his father, friends and teammates. Along with football, snooker was Connors other passion. He excelled at this, winning numerous tournaments including the U16 Northern Ireland Snooker Championship at age 12.

“We offer our sincerest condolences to Connors parents Fergal and Sharon, his little sister Caoimhe and the entire Marron and Doherty families”.

Another local community page, Photos of Portglenone, also shared a touching tribute to Connor.

It said: “P.O.P was shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden death of Connor Marron from Loughbeg road, Ahoghill. When you met Connor he always had a big smile on his face, he loved sport and had played for both Sean Stinsons and Casements GAC at underage level, and from all accounts often captaining his team, he also loved to play a game of snooker.
