A Fermanagh man killed in a Dublin motorbike accident will be buried today.

Stephen Fee, originally from Derryheely, Brookeborough, died in hospital after his motorbike was in collision with a car on the N4 near Lucan, west Dublin, on Monday.

Mr Fee moved away from Co Fermanagh to work in the construction industry 30 years ago, and settled in Dublin.

His remains will be brought to St Mary's Church, Maguiresbridge, for requiem mass where mourners will be led by his mother Monica, brother John and sisters Anna and Eileen.

He is the second member of the family to pass away in tragic circumstances.

Mr Fee's brother James was killed in a building site accident in New York 28 years ago.

Sinn Fein MLA Sean Lynch, a relative of Mr Fee, described him as a "quiet, unassuming gentleman".

He said: "Stephen worked in the construction industry in a number of different places including America and London before he settled in Dublin.

"He was a quiet, unassuming gentleman.

"He didn't come back to Fermanagh very often, but when he did he came to visit my own family so we knew him very well.

"Stephen's brother James was killed in a site accident in New York so they know the pain of a loss in tragic circumstances."
