The house where Katy French collapsed

This is the house where Katy French collapsed.

It is located at 10 Lambertstown Manor in Kilmessan, Meath.

In the early hours of December 2nd, 2007, the Irish model and "Celtic Tiger" socialite collapsed after taking cocaine at this house in County Meath.

French was found face-down in the bedroom in an unresponsive state by the owners, Kieron Ducie and Ann Corcoran.

At around 10 a.m., she was rushed to Our Lady's Hospital in Navan, where she suffered six cardiac arrests.

For the next four days, she remained in a coma in the hospital's intensive care unit.

On December 6th, 2007, French died after she was taken off life support.

She was only 24 years old.

Initially, the media believed that French had overdosed on drugs. However, a toxicology report confirmed that she had only taken a small quantity of cocaine and ephedrine (a drug that she may have mistaken for ecstasy).

During the inquest into her death, it was revealed that the model had died from hypoxic ischemic brain injury—a condition that occurs when the brain experiences a lack of oxygen or blood flow.

State pathologist Professor Marie Cassidy said the injury was most likely brought on by French's drug use, as even trivial amounts can have serious consequences.

In February 2013, the owners, Ducie and Corcoran, received suspended sentences after they pleaded guilty to conspiring to supply drugs on the weekend of French's collapse.
