Sudden death of Newry man

June 18, 2018

Condolences have been extended to the family of a Newry man who died suddenly on Friday.

In the days leading up to his tragic demise, Thomas Harte (44) had been the subject of a number of police appeals after he was reported missing by his family.  The father-of-three had not been since the early hours of Sunday 10th June.

In a series of appeals to the public for any information on his whereabouts, police were keen to point out that Mr Harte was not being sought in connection with any offence, but that officers shared the concerns of his family regarding his safety.  

His heartbroken family revealed on Friday evening that Thomas had passed away as a result of a tragic accident.  His funeral Mass is scheduled to take place today (Monday) in St. Mary’s Church with interment following in the adjoining cemetery.

Mr Harte is survived by his children James, Jessica and Natasha, father Joey, sisters Ursula and Paula, and large family circle.
