Pupils and teachers are in shock following the sudden death of a 15-year-old boy who became unwell in the school gym.

Ademidun Adeleke, known as Ade, was a popular third-year student at Scoil Mhuire in Clane, Co Kildare.

He was rushed to the Crumlin Children's Hospital in Dublin by emergency services after falling ill on Tuesday. Tragically, he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Gardai confirmed yesterday they are investigating the tragedy as a sudden death. Foul play is not suspected and a post-mortem will be carried out to determine the cause of death.

Principal Padraig Nolan described Ade as an excellent student. "He was always on time for school and always did his work to the best of his ability," he said yesterday.

"He was quiet and shy in many ways but really worked hard. He loved his sport and was a big Liverpool fan. The whole school is in shock."
