Dunloy joiner killed in road collision to be laid to rest

By Michelle Weir

Mourners will gather this morning for the funeral of a Co Antrim joiner who died in a road crash earlier this week.

Requiem Mass for 57-year-old Anthony McGhee will be held at St Joseph's Church in Dunloy at 11am.

The cortege will leave his home at Hawthorn Crescent in the village at 10.15am.

Mr Ghee was involved in a two-car collision on the A26 Crankill Road at the junction with Kildowney Road at Glarryford, close to Ballymena, on Tuesday evening.

The A26 is the main inland route from Belfast to the north Antrim coast.

The tragedy occurred at around 6.30pm. It is understood the victim was returning from work at the time of the collision.

Another casualty was taken to Antrim Hospital.

The PSNI has appealed for witnesses to come forward. Police said they particularly want to speak to the driver of a white van who was in the area at the time.

Mr McGhee is survived by his sons Michael and Damien.
