Tributes have continued to pour in for a tragic young woman who died while visiting Prague, in the Czech Republic.

Daire Hynes passed away after being rushed to hospital in the Czech capital on Saturday, November 27 where she was holidaying with her boyfriend Kevin.

It is believed that the 29-year-old became ill before she was taken to hospital for medical care where she passed away.

Her death has been announced on where it states that Daire (who died) unexpectedly, in Prague, is the beloved daughter of Tony and Jennifer and treasured sister of Laura and Kerri.

"Predeceased by her grandparents Peter and Maura Hynes, Tommy and Breena Grant, uncle Eugene Grant, aunt Mary Hanratty," it adds. "Daire will be sadly missed by her heartbroken mum and dad, sisters and her adored nephew Conor, aunts Patricia Johnston, Briege Hajar, uncles Michael, Eamon and Brendan Hynes, Michael Grant and her boyfriend Kevin O' Hanlon, cousins, extended family relatives, neighbours and wonderful friends."

A talented footballer, she played for the Dundalk Young Ireland’s ladies’ team, who paid tribute to her online.

"My hands are shaking and the tears are rolling down my face as I tell you about the sudden passing of one of our princesses," it reads.

"Early this morning our friend and comrade Daire was taken from us and given her angel wings.”

We are all devastated for her and her family and friends. Life can be so cruel. Far too young to leave us.

"You will be sadly missed by all your teammates at the DYI where you were much loved and adored.”

"You can see by the pictures how close these girls are. FAMILY,” they said, sharing a picture of the team.

"May your family have the strength to get over these few days and send you on your way to heaven. Fly high kid."

Her boyfriend Kevin O’Hanlon also wrote a touching tribute to his late partner: "I can’t believe I’m even writing this I just feel like I am stuck in a dream and I can’t get out of it.”

"Babe you have made me the happiest man that I never knew I thought was possible for someone to feel. There was not one moment in the time we had that I never felt like the luckiest and most loved person in the world from the very first time we laid eyes on each other.”

The couple only recently made their relationship official and were enjoying a romantic holiday together when tragedy struck.

Tributes poured in from loved ones, who shared their condolences with Daire’s family.

Another well wisher shared their own pain: “So sorry for your loss I lost a daughter this time last year in a car crash the pain is the worst pain ever still is please god you all will get strength to help you in this terrible time god bless you all. RIP Daire.”
