22-year-old Dublin DJ Ross Cummins was found dead at a house on Macken Street on the 1st of February 2014.

An inquest has found that the young man died as a result of alcohol and cocaine toxicity, while a preliminary post-mortem report found the popular DJ died of cardiac respiratory arrest secondary to alcohol and cocaine toxicity.

Mr Cummins, from Stella Gardens, Irishtown in Dublin 4 was attending a party where he is alleged to have downed a pint of whiskey as part of a Neknomination challenge.

Those engaging in Neknomination dares had to film themselves downing alcoholic drinks before nominating someone else to take the challenge.

The DPP has directed for no prosecution in relation to the death
