He had suffered fatal injuries.

Malachy Quinn, from the same road, has been charged with his murder.

The 67-year-old suspect appeared in court for the first time last week. His defence team did not lodge an application for bail and accordingly, District Judge Eamon King remanded Quinn into custody and adjourned the case to July 17.

He is predeceased by his beloved parents, Lily and Patrick McConville.

Michael will repose at McConville’s Funeral Home, O’Fiaich Square this evening (Tuesday).
