Tributes have been paid to a young girl who tragically passed away suddenly last week.

Leigh McDonnell (4), who lived in Rathangan, was a student at Stage Academy Newbridge, and described as a "dote" and "someone who would light up the room".

Leigh and her family are originally from Tallaght.

The academy where talented singer Leigh was well loved, lead the tributes saying;

“Brenda and Paula would like to send our deepest sympathies and condolences to the McDonnell family on the passing of their beautiful daughter Leigh. 

"Leigh was a student of StageAcademy and as a mark of respect we are cancelling our Tuesday and Wednesday class this week (20th & 21st feb) 

"Please take this time to say a little prayer for Leigh and her family x

"Leigh's star will always shine very bright for all of us to see.”

Funeral arrangements are expected to be announced shortly.

May She Rest In Peace.
