    According to British media reports, emergency services were unable to save the 21-year-old model from Belfast after she was found unconscious.

    “We don’t know exactly what happened but she has been having a very difficult time following the death of her mum from bowel cancer. She had a lot of support but her heart was broken. It’s so sad to think that she is gone now too. She hit an impasse last night and today she is not here to talk to. Rest in Peace Mairead,” model agency boss Cathy Martin, who worked with O’Neill for six years, told Belfast Live.
