Funeral for Co Fermanagh solicitor tomorrow


The funeral for Co Fermanagh solicitor and father-of-four Daniel Morris will be held tomorrow at noon.

Mr Morris, 37, who lived with his family in the Brookeborough area, died after a one-vehicle crash on Boxing Day.

The accident happened on the Belfast Road between Fivemiletown and Brookeborough just before 8am.

His funeral will place in Saint Mary’s chapel in Arney, a townland near Ballandeck.

Sinn Fein MP Michelle Gildernew told of her shock after the fatal accident.

“This is a terrible tragedy and has shocked the local community,” she said. “It is all the more tragic coming so soon after Christmas.

“I knew Dan Morris and his family personally and was shocked and saddened to hear of his death.

“He was a well known solicitor and was highly respected by everyone who knew him.

“My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to his wife, Aine, and their four children; Michael, Ciarán, Eoin and Óisin for their loss.

“It’s not the first time the family have experienced tragedy and Dan himself lost his father at a young age.”

The Fermanagh and South Tyrone MP added that Mr Morris and his family had recently moved to Brookeborough from Enniskillen.

“I’m sure the communities in both towns will rally round to support the Morris and O’Connor families at this difficult time,” she said.

Earlier the PSNI appealed for anyone who saw the collision in which Mr Morris died or who has any information to assist police with their inquiries by contacting officers at the Collision Investigation Unit in Steeple on 101.
