He suffered a serious head injury after falling from a wall.

Emergency services were called to the Avenida de las Playas resort and he was brought to the Jose Molina Orosa Hospital in Las Palmas.

Symbols brought to the altar all represented Mikey’s passion for sport and his talents on the pitch.

A poem in Mikey’s memory was  also read to the mourners. Again it's focus was on his sporting prowess.

“Remember not the tragedy, the sadness or the sense of waste, but the one you used to be,” it said.

The poem painted of picture of young Mikey with a cheeky smile, and being a team’s golden boy.

“The strength and the skill.  The quick and dancing feet. The thunderous right foot. The champion on the pitch, you stood tall and strong. Mikey Leddy, you will be with us forever in our hearts and souls,” it added.

In his homily, Fr Louis Illah spoke of the pain, shock and grief felt by everyone when news of Mikey’s death reached them.

The young teen, a student in the local St Patrick’s school and former pupil of St Anne’s primary school, would have turned 16 next month.

“As a multi talented and brilliant footballer, Mikey made his mark in Gaelic football and soccer,” said Fr Illah.

“Anytime Mikey wore the number 14 jersey for Navan O’Mahony’s GAA team, or the number 18 while playing for Drogheda United Under 15s, or the number 10 for Johnstown FC, his exceptional brilliant footballing qualities made him one of their standout players,” he added.

“He was dubbed the Roy Keane of Co Meath,” he said.

Prayers were said for the medics and hospital staff in Lanzarote who had done all they could after Mikey’s fall.

After funeral mass, to the song Somewhere Over The Rainbow, Mikey’s remains were brought to St. Mary's Cemetery in Navan for burial.
