Keady family’s double heartbreak after death of baby Hunter’s great grandmother

Funeral to take place on Saturday after sad passing of great grandmother of 11-month-old baby Hunter

A Keady family have been hit with double heartbreak following the passing of a great grandmother earlier this morning (Wednesday).

Ann McGleenan was the great grandmother of baby Hunter McGleenan, and grandmother to Hunter’s mum Nicole.

Mrs McGleenan passed away peacefully just 24 hours after the infant’s death.

Her funeral is due to take place on Saturday from her daughter Grania’s home.

A death notice reads: “Beloved wife of Paddy and loving mother of Sean, Gregory, Grania, Patricia and Barry and great grandmother of the late Baby Hunter Patrick (aged 11 months)

“Her remains will leave her daughter Grania O’Connor’s residence, 11 Crossmore Green, on Saturday to arrive at St Patrick’s Church Keady for 11am funeral mass. Burial afterwards in adjoining cemetery.

“Deeply regretted by her loving husband, sons, daughters, grandchildren, great grandchildren, sisters Mary Teresa (Farrell), Joan (Samhan), Angela (Bradshaw), Kathleen (Hatzer) and Helen (Carroll) and the entire family circle.

“On her soul Sweet Jesus have mercy.”

Meanwhile, a post mortem was to be carried out to establish the cause of death of baby Hunter, which has sent shockwaves throughout the community.

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.

On Wednesday afternoon, police were granted an additional 24 hours to question the man arrested. He is being detained at Banbridge.
