Ecstasy Claims Young Father

A young father in Ireland died after taking Ecstasy. From the Irish Independent:
THE family of a young Dundalk man who died after taking nine ecstasy tablets last night warned of the dangers of taking the drug.

Peter Duffy, of Cedarwood Park, Dundalk, warned that anyone taking the drug could suffer the same tragic fate as his son Gavin (18), who died last April.

He told the Louth County Coroner's court yesterday that his son's death was all the more tragic as the otherwise fit and healthy young man had become a father just prior to his death.

Louth County Coroner Ronan Maguire said the level of the drug MDMA found in Gavin's body - nine micrograms per millilitre of blood - was the highest ever recorded in Ireland.
