Tributes are being paid to a man who died after being seriously injured in an incident near Castleblayney.

41 year old Graham Tobin died yesterday in Beaumont Hospital from serious head injuries received on October 7th.

Graham Tobin was initially taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda and subsequently transferred to Beaumont Hospital, where he died yesterday.

Local Fianna Fail Councillor Padraig McNally said father of four Graham Tobin was popular in the local area.

The State Pathologist will carry out a post-mortem examination today.

The incident took place at a house at Sruth an Luir, Oram earlier this month, where it’s believed a number of people had gathered to watch a UFC fight.

27 year old Francis Hughes with an address at 30 Sruith an Luir, Oram was before the court yesterday charged in connection to the incident under Section 4 of the Non-Fatal Offences Against a Person Act.

Mr Hughes was remanded in custody yesterday to appear in Cloverhill District Court in four weeks’ time.
