Funeral of tragic schoolboy Callum to take place on Wednesday

The funeral of an eight-year-old Co Armagh schoolboy who tragically passed away over the weekend will take place on Wednesday.

Callum Morrow was one of four people involved in a road traffic collision on the Aughnacloy Road, at Banbridge, at around 5.20pm on Saturday.

Callum’s brother and dad suffered serious injuries, while a woman from another vehicle, is also in serious condition in hospital.

His funeral cortege will leave from his grandparents’ home on Castor Bay Road in Lurgan on Wednesday at 9.45am to St. Peter’s Church for 10.30am Requiem Mass.

Burial afterwards in St. Colman’s Cemetery.

Callum was the dearly loved son of Mandy and Stephen and loving big brother of James, adored grandson of May and John Morrow and the late Marie and Joseph Brennan.

Family flowers only please.

Carrick Primary School – where Callum was a pupil – say their doors will be open to children and their parents after the funeral.

“The last few days have been surreal for all in the school community,” said a school spokesperson.

“As a mark of respect staff will attend and a wreath on behalf of all connected to Carrick School has been organised. Parents are welcome to attend the funeral with children who wish to attend.

“Carrick Primary School will be open from 1-3pm on Wednesday for children and parents who wish to gather after the funeral service.

“There will be an opportunity given for children to write their memories of Callum and these will be made into a book for the family.

“We are thankful to the community of Lurgan for their thoughts, prayers and messages since Saturday evening.

“We also continue as a school community to pray for Callum’s family over the coming days.”

The PSNI are continuing to investigate Saturday evening’s collision and want witnesses to come forward.

“We are appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision or who may have dashcam footage to contact local officers in Lurgan or the Collision Investigation Unit on 101 quoting reference 994 21/07/18,” said the spokesperson.
