A community are rallying behind a Keady family hit by tragedy following the death of a little baby boy.

An online funding page has been set up to help the family of Hunter Patrick McGleenan who tragically passed away on Tuesday.

He was just 11-months-old and his untimely death has sent shockwaves through the small Co. Armagh community.

The funding page is to help the grieving family with funeral costs.

“Any money raised will be used by hunters loving family to pay for any costs involved with the wake / funeral arrangements and to help erect a headstone,” it read.

“Any donation is greatly appreciated, the family wish to thank all those who have expressed their condolences at this sad time.”

A death notice for little Hunter Patrick McGleenan said he was the beloved and cherished son of Nicole and loving grandson of Grania and Eddie.

Deeply regretted by his heartbroken mummy, grandparents, aunts Coleen and Erin, uncles Nathan, Jordan and Luke, great-grandparents Ann and Paddy and the entire family circle. Safe in the arms of Jesus.

A 31-year-old man continues to be questioned in relation to the infant’s death, while an investigation centres around a property on Market Street in the town.
