A man who died in a single-vehicle collision in Co Armagh in the early hours of this morning has been named.

He was 34-year-old Michael Ginesi from the Lurgan area.

Mr Ginesi’s brother Ralph, posting on Facebook, said: “Totally gutted my young brother Michael was tragically killed in a car accident last night, rest in peace bro.”

Sinn Fein MLA John O’Down sent his condolences to the family.

He said: “On behalf of Sinn Féin locally I want to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the victim who we will keep in our thoughts and prayers.”
