Family and friends gathered at Armagh Free Presbyterian Church yesterday for the funeral of Cole Murray, who passed away just weeks after becoming a father.

The 17-year-old took his own life last Friday at his home at Greenfield Way in Armagh city.

His funeral was held on the same day that his baby son Mason turned 10 weeks old.

The local community has been left stunned by the tragic death of the business diploma student at Southern Regional College and former City of Armagh High School pupil.

The teenager was laid to rest in St Mary's Urbleshanny Church Cemetery in Scotstown, Co Monaghan following his funeral service in Armagh yesterday afternoon.

He is also survived by his mother Yvonne, younger brother Jenson and wider family circle.
