Shock at sudden death of young Co Armagh man in US

The 25-year-old was discovered in his apartment on Saturday evening

A community has been left stunned following the sudden death of a young Co Armagh man in the US over the weekend.

Philip Hagan, 25, from Tynan, was found unresponsive in his Philadelphia apartment on Saturday evening.

Philip, who had been complaining of feeling ill, had failed to turn up to work on Friday.

A post-mortem into the cause of death was due to be carried out.

Philip leaves behind his father, Aghavilly, Tynan and Middletown Rector, Revd. Matthew Hagan, mother Jennifer, and brother Jonathan.

He had been due to fly home for Christmas later this week.

The Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust and Foreign Office have been working closely with the family and his remains are expected home just before Christmas.

Our thoughts are with Philip’s friends and family at this tragic time.
