The youngest of six children, Ronan suffered severe head injuries in 2014 after falling 20ft from a phone box in Brighton.

Ronan never fully recovered from the fall, and died in Cushendall over the weekend.

Parish priest Fr Luke McWilliams said the family had asked for privacy as they mourn their loss.

The death of Ronan comes 10 years after Liam Neeson lost his wife, Natasha Richardson.

Natasha sustained head injuries while skiing, and passed away at the age of 45.

The father-of-two opened up about her death in an interview with RTE in 2017.

"I'm not good without work. I just don't – I just don't wallow too much. You know? And I just didn't want to – especially for my boys – seem to be wallowing in sadness or depression".

"It hits you, it's like a wave. You just get this profound feeling of instability... The Earth isn't stable anymore and then it passes and it becomes more infrequent, but I still get it sometimes."

"Her death was never real. It still kind of isn't. There are periods now in our New York residence when I hear the door opening, especially the first couple of years... Any time I hear that door opening, I still think I'm going to hear her."

Our thoughts are with Liam, and his whole family, at this time.
