HEARTWARMING tributes have been paid to a "amazing" young girl who passed away just days after she met her idol, popstar Ed Sheeran.

Aoibhe O’Connor (11), from Mogeely in East Cork, is understood to have died unexpectedly at home on Wednesday after suffering a cardiac arrest following a minor fall.

The young girl was born with mucolipidosis, an extremely rare and progressively debilitating disorder. She was understood to have been the only person in Ireland living with the fatal condition.

“It’s truly tragic what has happened here, my sympathies to the family, my thoughts are with them at this very difficult time, it is so difficult to lose a child” said local councillor Michael Hegarty.

“She was a powerful little package, full of laughter and joy. I have reached out to her parents and family to tell them that we are here to provide whatever support we can as they prepare for that lonely walk with their child.”

Aoibhe is survived by her parents, John and Emma; by her sisters Lauren and Megan and her grandparents.

She will be buried on Sunday after 11am requiem Mass in St John the Baptist Church, Killeagh.
