Mairead O'Neill, who has been struggling with grief following her mother's passing, died after hanging out with friends on Monday night, the reasons of her death are still unclear.

The 21 year-old, who recently graduated from university, had recently worked at Belfast Fashion Week and the Carl Frampton fight in Belfast.

Her model agency boss has said she was a "vivacious" and "lovely young girl" but that she was "hurting" after her mother's tragic death.

O'Neill's mother, Karen Phelan, had passed away just 10 months ago after a battle with cancer.

An initial target of £4,000 was reached within just two hours of the page being opened with the total passing £6,000 last night.

According to Cathy there was times when Mairead "was unable to model and she felt a bit overwhelmed".

The death is the second tragedy to strike Mairead's family after her mother Karen Pelan passed away from bowel cancer previous year. She had been modeling for me for about six years and was doing very well. "Knew you for a short time but always put a smile on my face u always made me laugh.I'm so sorry u were so lost heart - breaks that you had no other way out wish you cud (sic) see how much you were loved".

In other words, just because the Cannabis Act says you can do something with pot in Canada, doesn't mean you can do it everywhere. Individuals are eligible to apply for a pardon through the Parole Board of Canada five years after the conviction is handed down.

"It doesn't matter if she was attractive - lovely people can be sad, they can be depressed", she said.

Cathy - who worked with Mairead for six years - told Belfast Live: 'We don't know exactly what happened but she has been having a very hard time following the death of her mum from bowel cancer.

She continued, "But what was most charming about her is that she really had no idea that she had the world at her feet".

A number of people have taken to social media to send their condolences to Mairead's family.

And having received several messages commenting on Mairead's beauty, Cathy was keen to highlight that "looks have absolutely zero" to do with mental health. "Gone too soon. RIP".

"I have had so many people message me to say that she was so handsome, but mental health issues don't leave you alone just because you're attractive".
