By Cate McCurry

A Co Tyrone boy found dead in his bed when his mother went to wake him for school has been described as "bright young star".

Daryl Comac (16) was a fifth-year student at St Patrick's Academy in Dungannon, and his sudden death has sent shockwaves through his home town.

It is understood that his mother found the teenager unconscious in bed when she went to wake him on Thursday morning.

Police have said they are not treating his death as suspicious.

The pupil was studying for his GCSEs and was a talented GAA footballer for his local team, St Mary's Killyman.

A spokesman for the club said that the whole community had been left completely shocked by the death.

He described Daryl as a "young lad who had a love for life and for Gaelic games" and was also a promising hurler for the Dungannon Eoghan Ruadh club.

"Killyman St Mary's, as a club and as a community, have been left devastated at the news of the passing of this bright young star," he added.

In a statement released by St Patrick's Academy, a spokesman paid tribute to the "promising student".
