Tributes to Conor Greene, who was found dead in Newry house

By Staff Reporter

Police are investigating the death of a young man whose body was discovered in Newry on St Patrick's Day.

The man was named on social media last night as Conor Greene, who was in his 20s and came from the Republic of Ireland. It is not known how Mr Greene met his death.

His body was found at a house in the Ardfeelin area of Newry.

In a public Facebook post last night, Conor's father, Pat Greene, paid tribute to his son.

"This man was my son... we learned of his death from his friend who found him dead on the couch he was sleeping on after a long night talking and having the craic.

"He was a troubled soul.

"But had a heart of gold.

"May he be at peace now.

"My wife and I miss him so much it hurts."

Friends were last night sending heartfelt messages of condolence to the grieving Greene family.

The PSNI has not yet confirmed whether the death is being treated as suspicious.

The area was sealed off while police forensic teams carried out their investigations into the death, but last night the street was open once more to traffic and pedestrians.

Ardfeelin is a development of modern detached homes on the north-eastern outskirts of the city.

Locals in the area said many of the houses had been rented to private tenants.
