Friends launch fundraising drive to help Reece Cullen’s family
Friends of Reece Cullen, who was fatally stabbed in Jobstown last Thursday, have begun fundraising in an effort to help the Cullen family pay for his funeral.
Several pages on the popular gofundme charity site have been set up in recent days, with the total so far raised reaching almost €1,000.
Investigations into the fatal stabbing are ongoing, with one teenager who was arrested last Friday morning released without charge on Saturday.
Gardai say a file is now being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Reece, who lived in Bawnlea and was a former student of Mount Seskin Community College, had links to a number of community-based organisations such as Rainbow House, An Cosan and Citywise.
In a Facebook post over the weekend Citywise, who are based in Jobstown, said they will be open today and will have staff and volunteers available to support any young people who have been affected by the tragedy.
Gardai continue to appeal to witnesses who may have been in the Kilclare area on Thursday afternoon between 2.45pm and 3.30pm to contact them at Tallaght Garda Station on 01 666 6000, The Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
