Gardaí clarify rumours about death at the Electric Picnic this year

Gardaí in Laois have quashed rumours that a young man died at the Electric Picnic.

Portlaoise Gardaí who oversaw the event for the 15th year confirmed that there was no fatality over the weekend as has been rumoured on social media and reported in an online news website.
