Tributes for Dylan thumbnail

THE close-knit community of Armoy has been plunged into mourning after the tragic death of a young man in a road traffic collision late on Sunday night (May 7).
21-year-old Dylan O'Kane would have been a familiar face to those who lived in the small rural village and tributes posted on social media are testament to the fun-loving, happy-go-lucky young man he had been.
Dylan's grandfather, Hugh O'Kane, runs a used car dealership in the village and would be well known throughout North Antrim and further afield. On Monday, his uncle, Hugh O'Kane Junior told The Chronicle that the close-knit family were devastated but had been comforted by the support from the community.
Mr O'Kane, who also lives in Armoy, said: "We are a very close family and Dylan's death is very, very sad for everyone.
“Dylan was just a young boy, he was always running about so I didn't get to see him as often as I would like, but the family are devastated.
