The brother of the tragic teenager who drowned on a Dublin beach this week has launched a fundraiser to help cover funeral costs.
Radley Lulendo, 14, died Monday July 11 after getting into trouble while swimming at Burrow Beach.
His brother Pasias Lulendo set up GoFundMe to help pay for the funeral.
“I am raising funds for the funeral to help my family during this devastating time,” the fundraiser reads.
“We’d appreciate any help we can get.”
Funeral arrangements have yet to be announced.
A family friend told sundayworld.com that the student lives in Drumcondra with his parents and two siblings.
Originally from Congo and Angola, his heartbroken parents are comforted by the wider African community in Ireland at their church in Clondalkin.
The Irish Coastguard said the coast was searched extensively before the teenager was rescued from the water.
At the same time, a second teenager was rescued.
Gardai and emergency services were at the scene of the Burrow Beach incident on Monday evening.
Bradley was taken to Beaumont Hospital and later to CHI in Temple Street, Dublin, where he later died.
