Declan McGlinchey - an obituary



The McGlinchey family of Bellaghy suffered tragedy anew this week with the sudden death of Declan, a lifelong republican activist who died of a suspected heart attack on Sunday. He is survived by his wife Brenda, seven children and brother Dominic.

After a final salute with a volley of shots to mark his contribution to the armed struggle, there was a large and diverse attendance at his republican funeral in Bellaghy on Wednesday, with a guard of honour provided both by the GAA and by his former comrades.

The following obituary was released by the Irish Republican Socialist Party.
