Paddy Grimley

The funeral of a Co Armagh father-of-three, killed in a collision outside Markethill over the weekend, will take place on Wednesday morning.

Patrick Grimley, who turned 40 last week – and who had been returning from a night out celebrating the milestone with friends and family – was one of nine people involved in the multi-vehicle collision on the Gosford Road in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Patrick will be laid to rest after his funeral mass at St Joseph’s Church in Madden at 11am.

He has been described as a devoted father to Tagdh, Mya and Cadhla, as well as the loving son of Brian and Frances and cherished grandson of the late Pat (Grimley).

His beloved wife Ciera continues to fight for her life in hospital having also been involved in the collision.

Three others – two men and one woman – remain in hospital. Another woman was discharged on Sunday night.

Patrick is deeply regretted by his heartbroken wife, children, parents, brothers Liam, Ciaran, Ryan and Niall, sister Megan, parents in law Eugene and Bridie, Granny Nellie (Grimley), Grandparents Kevin and Deirdre (Woods), brothers in law, sisters in law and the entire family circle and many friends and the wider GAA family.

The house, at 21a Kilcreevy Road in Armagh, will be private to family on Wednesday morning.
