Mr McGlinchey (39), a son of INLA leader Dominic McGlinchey, died of a heart attack at his home suddenly on Sunday night.

The funeral was held today in St Mary’s Church in Bellaghy, with hundreds following his coffin through the village to requiem mass.

Declan McGlinchey, a father-of-seven, took ill with chest pains on Sunday.

His family phoned an ambulance and he was able to walk out of the house.
