THE funeral of a Rathfriland man who died in a tragic accident while on holiday is to take place tomorrow (Thursday).

David Hanna passed away after fainting in a swimming pool at the Globales Palmanova Hotel in Majorca.

The local man, who was originally from Bessbrook, lived at Ashleigh Meadows, Rathfriland with his mother. He had recently lost his father at the beginning of the year.

David had worked as a caretaker at Banbridge Academy for a number of years.

His funeral will be held in Bessbrook Presbyterian Church at 1.30pm, followed by committal in Armagh Road Presbyterian Cemetery.

David was the father of Rachel, Sophie and Jake, son of Beth and the late Billy, brother of Cheryl and her partner Lester and uncle to Gary and his wife Jane.
