Gardai are appealing to the public for information on the death of a teenager who passed away at Letterkenny General Hospital after taking ill at a nightclub.

Tory Johnson (17) became ill at a nightclub in Letterkenny in the early hours of Wednesday morning and was subsequently taken to hospital. 

The 17-year-old was able to walk to a waiting ambulance before she was brought to Letterkenny General Hospital. 

It is understood she was persuaded to attend hospital after security at the nightclub and her friends became concerned for her well-being. However, at approximately 6.30am she suffered a suspected heart attack and was pronounced dead a short time later. 

Gardai investigating her death are now appealing to anybody who may have been out with her that night. 

They are particularly keen to speak to anyone who was socialising in Voodoo nightclub in the early hours of the morning and who may be in possession of information that would assist with the investigation.
