The funeral of Seamus Bell will take place this weekend.
The 36 year old from Carrickmacross died in hospital earlier this month, after he sustained serious injuries in an incident on the Main Street in the town in January.
He was out celebrating the baptism of his newborn twins at the time.
Guards of honour will be in place in Carrickmacross, Castleblayney and Monaghan town this afternoon, as his funeral cortege passes through.
Seamus will lie in repose in Knockatallon, with his funeral on Saturday in St Patrick’s Church in Keady at 12 noon.
