A community has been left reeling following the sudden and untimely death of a popular Keady man on Monday morning.

Eamon Nugent was found dead at his home on the Dunlarg Road in Keady.

Since news of the highly-thought of bricklayer’s heartbreaking passing, tributes have been pouring in.

Darkley Rural Community Group, where Eamon grew up and went to primary school, led tributes to the 32-year-old.

“We are deeply saddened to hear of Eamon’s passing this morning,” their post read.

“We offer our heartfelt sympathies and support to Caroline, Frankie and the entire Nugent family circle in these most awful of times. May he rest in peace.”

Others paid tributes to a “lovely lad” with some reminiscing of their times spent with Eamon, both in Darkley and Keady.

Eamon was the beloved son of Frankie and Caroline, and loving brother of Sinead, Louise, and younger siblings Cathy and Colm. He was also partner to Laura.

Eamon’s funeral arrangements will be announced later, with all enquiries to go through Mone Funeral Directors.

We at Armagh I would like to extend our heartfelt sympathies to Eamon’s family at this time.
