The funeral takes place on Wednesday of a Newtownabbey man who passed away after an 11-month battle with head injuries sustained in a workplace fall.

Allen Greer (47) passed away at Musgrave Park Hospital last Thursday following a lengthy period in intensive care.

At the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, his family shared their heartbreak over being unable to visit Allen in hospital during lockdown for many months. They were able to visit him again over the summer after the restrictions were relaxed.
