Funeral details have been announced for Philip Corr who died while cycling home over the weekend.

The popular Cookstown father of four died suddenly after being out on a run with the Belfast-based Titanic Quarter Cycling Club (TQCC) on Saturday.

The 41-year-old left to cycle home by himself and was later found collapsed on the Ballynahinch Road in Dromara. Hundreds expressed shock at his sudden passing.

His wife Kelly was left devastated.

"He was my everything... he was life... he was everything I could possibly have dreamed and so much more," she said.

His funeral service will take place on Thursday at 2.30pm at St Colmcille's Parish east Belfast followed by a committal at Roselawn Crematorium at 4.30pm.

Mr Corr had been raising money for a charity cycle this Saturday in aid of promoting mental health for students. His family have asked for family flowers only and donations to his fundraiser.

The Mind Your Mood challenge will see cyclists take on a 100-mile route between Ulster University's four campuses.

A fundraising page had already been set up by Mr Corr raising over £2,000 since his death. It can be found here

Mr Corr is survived by his wife Kelly and children Nathan, James, Bradley and Sophia.
